Description

First published in 1899, Egyptian Magic is a classic work of one of the most prolific Victorian Egyptologists, Sir E. A. Wallis Budge. Budge presents a history of Egyptian magic and the details of its practice to help you uncover the Egyptian's distinction between white magic and black magic as you learn about magical artifacts, their identities and their applications in detail.

Additionally, some first hand accounts claiming to have witnessed effects of the Egyptian occult are also contained in these pages for your intrique.

Egyptian Magic is essential reading for anybody interested in ancient cultures and their approaches to magic.

The author

Sir E. A. Wallis Budge (1857-1934) was a noted English Egyptologist. He worked for the British Museum during the era of Victorian fascination in ancient cultures and wrote numerous books on Egypt, including the important work, The Egyptian Book of the Dead. On behalf of the British Museum, Budge traveled to Egypt and Sudan numerous times to acquire antiquities, many of which continue to reside at the Museum. His acquisitions and writing helped to bring Egyptology to a wider audience, and they continue to resonate today. In 1920, Budge was knighted for his work of bringing Egyptology to the masses, and to the British Museum. He retired from the museum in 1924, and died ten years later. In his will, he established a scholarship for intrepid young minds at both the University of Cambridge and the University of Oxford to continue his work in Egyptology.
