This is the most complete book of its kind, of great interest to anyone interested in the occult. Here is a multitude of talismans charms, seals and other magical figures from many ages and cultures. They represent just about every desire of mankind. The search for love, wealth, health, power, revenge, good luck, etc. is never ending. The use of an alleged magical artifact or natural materials to achieve one's desires or needs is as old as civilization.
A talisman, be it referred to by that name, or as an amulet, seal, cross, charm, ouanga, etc. has one basic ability common to all of them. That ability is being able to help it's possessor. The power will be of a specific type. A love talisman is for bringing love only and a wealth talisman is for bringing wealth only.
A talisman can be likened to a magnet or radio receiver attracting forces indiscernible and unknown to science. The fame of certain charms and crosses is known to all. Science may question but it cannot explain the countless stories of good fortune, and even miracles, that abound in history regarding what a talisman has brought forth.
