This Weiser classic reprint of the 1877 publication of Lenormant's La Magie Chez les Chaldeens is a scholarly exposition of the magical practices, religious systems and mythology of the Chaldeans of ancient Assyria. It explores the translation of a larg table from the library of the royal palace at Nineveh, containing 28 formulas of deprectory incantations against evil spirits, the effects of sorcery, disease, and the principal misfortunes that attack people in the course of daily life.
