I apologise for the potential redundancy of this question, but can any of you recommend a good book on the history of Hermetic magic? I see a lot of names mentioned on the forums (Abramelin, Paracelsus, etc.), but have little knowledge about them, and would like to learn more. Mainly, I am interested in the old adepts' own journeys' to try to use their insight to aid me in my own studies. Thank you for your insights.
