Inhaltsangabe: What are the secrets of Obeah? This Caribbean magical tradition strikes fear into the hearts of many. Now at last its secrets are revealed. The Obeah Bible was originally published as The Great Book of Magical Art, Hindu Magic and East Indian Occultism in 1898 by L.W. de Laurence. This text is taken from the 1915 edition. The Great Book became an influential text in the practice of certain African-derived magic systems, including hoodoo, Voodoo and Obeah. The Great Book, along with all other books published by the De Laurence Company, remain banned in Jamaica due to strong associations with Obeah practice. This has earned The Great Book its nickname The Obeah Bible.

Vom Verlag: The Obeah Bible was originally published as The Great Book of Magical Art, Hindu Magic and East Indian Occultism in 1898 by L.W. De Laurence. This text is taken from the 1915 edition.

Despite the title, the text has little to do with Hinduism -- many of the "Hindu" words were fabricated and pasted into the text, of which much is an adapted version of Francis Barrett's 1801 occult work The Magus (which was itself a compilation of earlier European occult works, including those by Cornelius Agrippa and Pietro d'Abano.)

The Great Book became an influential text in the practice of certain African-derived magic systems, including Hoodoo, Voodoo and Obeah. Some have even gone so far as to call Obeah "a form of magic based on a mail-order catalogue" (referring to De Laurence's primary sales technique.)

The Great Book, along with all other books published by the De Laurence Company, remained banned in Jamaica due to strong associations with Obeah practice. This has earned The Great Book its nickname The Obeah Bible.

In this edition, original spelling has generally been preserved, and corrections have been made to the text only in cases of obvious error. Most footnotes have been retained except for those which directed the reader to purchase goods and services which are no longer available. There have been minimal additions. Several of the illustrations have been re-drawn or scanned from original sources in order to achieve utmost clarity.
