Forgotten knowledge, now easily accessible
A Key to Physic and the Occult Sciences provides a finely detailed, glorious full color, case-bound hardcover edition of a rare 200-year-old book, lavishly illustrated with meticulous reproductions of the original hand-tinted copper-plate engravings. It’s a fascinating and comprehensive journey through the extent of human knowledge, guided by one of the founding philosophers of the modern occult movement. Sibly’s book represents the state of Western culture, scientific and occult, as of the end of the 18th century, including many astounding insights that are “forgotten knowledge” today.

40 years in the making
Copies of this book are nearly impossible to find. We obtained one over 40 years ago from an antiquarian bookseller and have meticulously preserved it in anticipation of creating this premium facsimile edition. Only in recent years has technology developed to the point where we can offer an affordable edition of this masterpiece in glorious full color. We have individually scanned every page and assembled them into this deluxe hardcover book which exactly duplicates our copy, including minor age spots and wrinkles.
