1882 No book was ever written so rich as this in all strange, wondrous, magical, and supernatural lore. It is the Bible of a new Society which threatens to swallow up myriads of minds predisposed to religion but dissatisfied with the insignificance in which the Jehovah of Christendom leaves his worshippers. The authoress is a woman endowed with singular cleverness, subtlety, and accomplishments ; and thoroughly well acquainted with “the Rosicrucians of the Middle Ages, such as Robert Fludd, Paracelsus, Thomas Vaughan, Van

Helmont, and others” (vol. I, p. xxv).
