From the cover: “Alchemist, astrologer, mystic and mathematician, John Dee was one of the most brilliant and controversial figures of the Elizabethan age. Here for the first time his private journals and spirit diaries are brought together in an accurate and readable version, compiled from the original manuscripts in the Bodleian Library and the British Museum. They reveal the soaring ambition of one who aspired to walk with God, and the extraordinary consequences of his quest for the key to all knowledge.”
