As well as it was received, it should be noted that L.W. de Laurence used many ancient texts to publish his bootleg editions of many occult texts. This is one of his more outrageous and ironic productions. His Great Book of Magical Art, Hindoo Magic & Indian Occultism (1915) was a [copying] (without acknowledgement) of Frances Barrett's The Magus, or Celestial Intelligencer (1801), which in turn is a [copy] of Agrippa's Occult Philosophy and de Abano's Heptameron. Besides substituting his name for Barrett's, and substituting a large photo of himself for Barrett's, de Laurence's contributions consisted mainly of altering some of the Hebrew sacred names of God for fabricated pseudo-Hindu sounding names such as replacing Barrett's (and Agrippa's) "Schemhamphorae" with "Zinkuminbujia." Similarly "Abraham" became "Athumech", "Trithemius" became "Kukuzuima-Munkinximaki" etc.! ( )
