John Dee (1527-1608) is most known for his work with Edward Kelley
in contacting spirits and transcribing angelic language. Smith
provides a clear retelling of their famous and tempestuous
relationship and lays to rest some of the ridiculous stories about
Dee. Charlotte Fell Smith's biography draws from Dee's private
diaries and several of his important works including The Book of
the Mysteries and A True and Faithful Relation, bringing to light
all his truly remarkable accomplishments. As a man of great
learning, he fell under the suspicion of his less gifted
contemporaries and suffered rumour and even imprisonment. But for
the most part, he was quite famous in his day, serving as
mathematician, astronomer and astrologer to the royal court of
England. Smith credits him for initiating the creation of England's
National Library. An essential work for students who want a full
understanding of the ground from which the esoteric arts have
