Another set of book recommendations is the complete set of James Frazer’s, “The Golden Bough.”
It makes very good reading. Some of the research was done 2nd hand, but it still gives a ton of wonderful information.
Most editions available today are of the first two volumes: “The Magical Art, Volumes I and II;” but the other volumes are quite information and filled with much magical information that does not fail to inspire your magical practice.
These volumes make great reference material. The last volume in this set is a massive index, which makes it much easier to find what volume contains the entries you are looking for in the set.
