From the creator of the diabolical Dr. Fu Manchu comes this exploration of occult history. Sax Rohmer, an expert on the dark arts, presents an intriguing tour of sorcery through the ages, from ceremonies of witchcraft and demonology to the spells, curses, and rites of Satanism. Rohmer's engaging and informative survey also examines the practices of astrology and alchemy. In addition to its study of dark rituals, The Romance of Sorcery offers vivid profiles of key figures of the occult: Nostradamus, the sixteenth-century seer who prophesied major world events; Dr. John Dee, the advisor to Elizabeth I who straddled the worlds of science and magic; Cagliostro, the eighteenth-century con artist who amassed millions and died broke; and Madame Blavatsky, a founder of Theosophy and leading figure of the New Age movement.
