‘The Complete Magician’s Tables’ by Stephen Skinner

I know that many members will be very excited to hear of Stephen Skinner’s latest book: The Complete Magician’s Tables.

This is a wonderful work of research and confident scholarship that I’ve been fortunate to have had advanced sight of for review purposes. For the past few weeks it’s rarely been out of my sight in the evenings as I continue my studies.

A full review will follow this weekend, but for now, this is what advertising material says:

Contains the most complete set of tabular correspondences covering magic, astrology, divination, alchemy, tarot, I Ching, kabbalah, gematria, grimoires, angels, demons, pagan pantheons, plants, perfumes, incenses, religious and mystical correspondences currently in print. They are more than four times more tables than in Crowley’s Liber 777.

The source of the data in these tables ranges from unpublished manuscript mediaeval grimoires and Kabbalistic works, Peter de Abano, Abbott Trithemius, Albertus Magnus, Henry Cornelius Agrippa, Dr John Dee, Dr Thomas Rudd, Tycho Brahe, MacGregor Mathers (and the editors of Mathers’ work, Aleister Crowley and Israel Regardie), to the most modern theories of prime numbers and atomic weights. The sources include many key grimoires such the Sworn Book, Liber Juratus, the Lemegeton (Goetia, Theurgia-Goetia, Almadel, Pauline Art), Abramelin, and in the 20th century the grimoire of Franz Bardon.

All this material has been grouped and presented in a consistent and logical way covering the whole Western Mystery tradition and some relevant parts of the Eastern tradition.

This is one volume that all serious students of matters arcane and occult will want to own…
