Occult Botany ~ Sedir's Concise Guide To Magical Plants
Author: Paul Sedir
A classic text on esoteric traditional herbalism from one of the most influential herbalists of the Paris occult revival. Merging the scientific discipline of botany with ancient, medieval, and Renaissance traditions of occult herbalism, this seminal guide was first published in French in 1902 as a textbook for students of Papus cole hermtique and sparked a revival in the study of magical herbalism in early twentieth-century France.
Author Paul Sedir, pseudonym of Yvon Le Loup (1871-1926), explains the occult secrets of phytogenesis (the esoteric origin and evolutionary development of the plant kingdom), plant physiology (the occult anatomy of plants), and plant physiognomy (classification of plants according to the doctrine of signatures).
