Preface
This Volume is an authentic and an official work, compiled
from Ancient Jtlanuscripts, and gives in full detail many rare and
Secret Mysteries. The same is embellished with several full page
illustrations of Magic Ceremonies; together with nearly one hun
dred and fifty rare old engravings of Ancient Talismans, etc.
There is also, for the first time, given to the student, in this work,
a complete reproduction of the Original Mysteries and Ancient
Manuscripts of the “DIVINE RAPHAEL,” better known as the
“Metropolitan Astrologer” and editor of the Prophetic Almanac,
and other Sidral works.
This book also contains the Mystic Rites, Ceremonies, and
Incantations, used by the Ancient Theurgists and old Philoso
phers to burst asunder the bounds of natural order, and to obtain
an intercourse with the world of spirits; for let it known, to
those whose eyes follow these words, that millions of spiritual
creatures walk the earth unseen, both when we are awake and
when we are asleep. .
The rapid sale, over the world, of my books, and the
unprecedented requests for Catalogues, describing the same,
has caused me to publish this work although I have had these
Ancient Manuscripts in my possession many, many years, hav
ing purchased them at a very great cost; but as my former books
are in such vigorous demand, I have deemed it expedient to
present the philosophical world with this compendious Volume;
wherein is contained Instructions, Secrets and Mysteries that
were known only to the old Masters some four hundred years ago.

The inconsistencies of many authors, and the foolish claims
of book sellers, who are selling works said to have been written
by RAPHAEL, always brings a quiet and sarcastic smile to the face
of those that know that the market today is flooded with false
and spurious editions of this great man’s writings.

This Volume is an authentic one, and the student may depend
upon it, from the first to the last page, as I have carefully
expunged everything not valuable, original, and worthy of the
student’s attention, so that he may, with as little difficulty as
possible, be capable of learning the Astral and Celestial Worlds
in their most essential parts. As to the Magical and Occult Parts
of this work; such as Magic Rites, Charms, and Incantations,
they are most fully explained so as to enable my Students and my
Disciples to complete the full development of their Occult studies.
There are things taught in this Volume which will enable the
student to operate many strange and wonderful things so that
even this part of the work may not be devoid of utility; but may
help the student to invoke powers that will render him great aid.
The student of Spiritual Mysteries and Astral Powers will find
ample herein to gratify his desire; for in the perusal of these
Rare And Ancient Manuscripts, many of which are replete with
those secrets now so much sought after, the student will realize
the great worth of this Volume which will be found acceptable
to the legitimate student of Magic And Celestial Science.

No modern Expositor of Astrology can bear in comparison
with the “DIVINE RAPHAEL,” and among ancient expositors, he
stood the highest in authority, all yielding to his great knowledge.
Hence, no greater name than RAPHAEL’s has ever embellished
the science of Astrology and no Volume such as this one, contain
ing his Original Mysteries, has ever been before published. The
very same deals with Magic, Charms, Talismans, Astral In»
fluences, The Spirit World, Demonology And Witchcraft.
The real manhood of man can only be gained by having a full
and clear knowledge of Occultism and Ancient Magic. This is
the ideal which all earnest Occult students is striving to attain,
and this ideal has plainly been recognized by all intelligent leaders
of human progress. The time has come for men and women
“to put away childish things,” and to relinquish the beliefs and
practices of the priest, the minister and the materialists.

Ancient Magic is a terrible power. It is based upon the pre
scientific world-conception, which in its primitive stage is called
animism, imputing to nature a spiritual life analogous to our own
spirit, and peopling the spirit world with individual personalities.
The Old Magic stands in contrast to material science; it trans
cends human knowledge by supernatural methods and is based
upon the fact of operating many wonderful things by the assist
ance of Invisible Powers and Intelligent Spirits who can be
forced by Magical Invocations into an alliance with the operator.
The real Occult student knows that evil influences, of every
kind, can be averted and warded ofi by Charms or Talismans, and
that the aid of, both good and Evil Spirits, can be procured by
proper Incantations and Conjurations.
The world-conception of true ‘Occultism and Magic is long
lingering, and its influence will not subside instantaneously with
the first frown of material science. The Middle Ages were‘full of
Magic, and the belief in it has not died out to this day, and never will.
Dr. L. W. de Laurence.
