Additional Information

Although revered in his own time, John Dee (1527-1608) was until recently regarded as an isolated crank on the margins of Tudor history. This anthology of Dee's writings illustrates his diverse interests and his central position in the history of Renaissance thought and the development of Western Magic. Dee's celebrated Preface to Euclid is included along with selections from his Spiritual Diaries and letters to other mystics and royals. In addition to Hermetic and Cabalistic philosophy, mathematics, astronomy, astrology, and navigation are also covered.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Unfortunately, while it's good that an anthology of Dee's writings exists at all, I don't believe that Mr. Suster did a very good job in including texts from the whole of Dee's career. While the focus of the anthology is on the occult, there are sections from texts such as Dee's "Mathematicall Preface" to Euclid that are very esoteric that Suster just passes over. I believe that this is because the scope, and approach, is either dismissive of Dee's other works, or does not think that they would be applicable in understanding his occult beliefs. Understanding the complete context of Dee is important for seeing where exactly his occult beliefs fit in. While this material is somewhat more difficult than many occultists would be used to reading, it is not impossible, and would enrich the occult parts of the book considerably.
