The Sixth and Seventh Books of Moses, arguably one of the most popular magick books ever published, contains two secret apocrypha ascribed to Moses, perhaps pseudepigraphically. The book consists of a collection of texts,which claim to explain the magick Moses used to win the biblical magick contest with the Egyptian priest-magicians, part the Red Sea, and perform other miraculous feats. It includes instruction in the form of invocations, magick words, and seals for calling upon the angels to affect worldly ends, from the sublime (calling down a plague of locusts and frogs upon your enemy) to the mundane (getting more money). Many manuscripts and printed pamphlet versions circulated in Germany in the 1800s, and an English translation by Johann Scheible first appeared in New York in 1880 that had not been corrected or re-edited until now. In creating this restored, corrected edition, Joseph Peterson drew on Scheible's final edition of the text and his original sources. It will be of great interest to those who have suffered through prior editions and anyone looking for a traditional source of Western magick. Used in various modern traditions of American folk magick, from Pennsylvania Dutch hexmeisters and contemporary eclectic magicians, to voodoo practioners and African American root workers. Updated or fresh translations from original German, Latin, and Hebrew sources and restoration of censored or left out passages in earlier editions and 35 pages of text never before translated. Describes the biblical magick ascribed to Moses and its application. Extensively illustrated with over 100 magical seals, signs, and sigils.… (mer)

Joesph H. Peterson is an occult scholar, to my mind, of great ability has produced a number of texts in the recent past including an edition of the “Lesser Key of Solomon”,“John Dee's Five Books of Mystery”, “Grimorium Verum” , and
the subject of the review “The Sixth and Seventh Books of Moses”. “Sixth and Seventh Books of Moses”? I thought there were only 5! You would indeed be correct as those first books of the Bible are indeed those that are so called because they they contain the life, deeds, and adventures that immortal teacher, lawgiver, and prophet. Not because as it is sometimes supposed because he wrote them, it would have been very difficult write about your own death as the
Book of Deuteronomy has an account of this at the end of it.

The original book appears to have been based on the Latin “Liber Razielis” in that part that is claimed to be written by Moses. That book is based on the Hebrew “Sefer Raziel HaMalach” or “Book of The Angel Raziel”. Apparently the two books diverged fairly early, as by the 1500s they had very little in common as far as content. The Liber Raziel was considered important enough a source of information to be drawn on by the great Cornelius Agrippa for his “Three Books of Occult Philosophy”.

In fact the most of the current “Sixth and Seventh Books of Moses” is descended from the 6th and 7th books of the “Liber Raziel”. The first printed edition was issued by one Peter Hammer in 1734 in Germany as were many other editions soon afterward from various sources. A scholar by the name of Johann Scheible gathered all the variant printed and manuscript editions and compiled the present edition ,
translating it into German and issued it as part of a larger work of his in 1849.

The first American edition was published in 1880 by the Wehman Brothers, whom apparently made many mistakes in the translation of the Hebrew and German along with some censorship of the text. The texts of the various amulets were printed in a reverse color, in other words white letters on black, which some feel added to the already sinister reputation of the book. I'm guessing they did it that way because it was less expensive. In the many editions that have published since then there has been no corrections or changes in the already error filled text. Just a complete reprinting of the Wehman brother's edition without any changes in cheaper and cheaper editions and ,because of the paper and ink used, more and more unreadable books.

This is the first new edition of this book in the U.S. Since the Wehman Brothers' in 1880. Mr. Peterson has a done a magnificent job in reediting, retranslating, and correcting both the text and the illustrations, diagrams, and amulet forms by going back to German originals for his source material. Even to restoring color variations of many of the pictures, something the Wehman Brothers didn't bother with for what ever reason. If you have ever tried study the old reprint, the difference between that and this version is almost night and day. If you are at all interested in this form magick this is one book you want. ( )

In the Victorian Era, it was commonplace to respect and communicate with the dead. From daguerreotypes of children and adults who have passed, to Victorian picnics on a relative's grave on a Sunday as a way of bringing the family closer to the deceased. It was believed that the spirits of loved ones were closest to earth in graveyards, and therefore, it was not unusual to spend time in that location as a sign of respect.

This book appears to have it's origins in the mid to late 1800's though a reviewer on Amazon states that the writer appears as early as post-1500's. The book offers spells and magical formulas of "The Old Ancient Writings and Famous Manuscripts of the Hebrews". It is certainly a fun book, full of hand-constructed tables, White Magic and references to Black Magic too.

In addition to the spells, my book came with a bit of melted purple wax from a previous owner, to infuse the seriousness of the spells. The pictorial examples display Hebrew, Egyptian Hieroglyphics, Greek, Arabic, Latin and Victorian symbology referring to death. As a rank amateur historian, I have a few problems with this book or the historical references discussed.

To begin, the book makes copious references to "Famous Manuscripts of the Hebrews." No manuscript of Ancient Hebrew that I am aware of included Latin, Victorian Symbols, Egyptian Hieroglyphics and the more modern day Aramaic. In addition, Latin began during the Roman empire (6th century BC to the 1st century BC), and that period was after the ancient Hebrew manuscripts were written, by just a few years.

The Hebrew in this book is hand-written, and unfortunately has a variety of problems: Some Hebrew letters are backwards or sideways, are incorrectly displayed and the final Hebraic letters ending the sentences are not displayed correctly. There are numerous grammatical errors which could be intentional, however, if these were taken "from ancient Hebrew manuscripts" the writer should not have used the modern handwritten form of Hebrew, but should have stayed with the formal Hebrew from documents, also known in circles as Hebrew Calligraphy or Calligraphic Hebrew. Some Hebrew letters are not factually based, but appear to be made up symbols, representing certain Hebrew letters known to exist 5000+ years ago.

In addition, Hebrew isn't the only language that appears to be mangled. The Latin also isn't grammatically correct, with incorrect familiar deritives of the root. And since when did the Ancient Hebrews mix the grammer with latter day Latin?

The English translation is period correct for the late 1800's but incorrect for the transliteration of common bibical names and these names are presented with old-fashioned grammatical spellings, thus making the spells incorrect by the incantation of the names included. Lots of fun to try if you want to, but if you are a serious student studying this antique book as a source of spells, it starts the student off incorrectly in multiple ways.

So why is this book still popular and why did it survive all these years?

The Edwardian era introduced the "dawn of new age" and ushered in the Victorian thought about death. Most persons believe that Queen Victoria was responsible for "long periods of mourning" but this is factually incorrect. The Victorian attitude to death and mourning was already in place before the Victorian era, and death was an event in which people reached out through seances, study and respect of the dead.

Since the Victorians didn't have television, it was common practice to have evening events such as seances, and books like these flourished, along with many practitioners of the "dark arts". There were many entertainers and charlatains participating in communicating with the dead. To have this type of book at your disposal as a cheap pulp hardbound book meant that you could bring the spirits into your home, without hiring a professional. And you could have your close friends and relatives participate, honoring your loved ones.

It's a fun book, and despite the errors, it's quite an entertaining read. You can get it on Amazon in a modern reproduced copy for as little as $6.
