Many of the ancient text translations can be found at Sacred Texts. There is also a copy of the Book of the Dead, Leyden Papyrus, etc. Dare I also mention they host translations of ancient texts from many, many cultures.

Also, a book on Magic I recommend is:
Invocation of the Gods -Ancient Egyptian Magic for Today by Ellen Cannon Reed. ISBN # 0-87542-667-0
It has the Egyptian calendar with the modern corresponding dates & what the day's forecast represented. Very good book.

Blessings,
Lynn

There are many good books listed so far. I would recommend:

Sacred Science: The King of Pharaonic Theocracy
by R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz

http://www.amazon.com/Sacred-Science-King-Pharaonic-Theocracy/dp/0892812222/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top

You may be able to find it in a University library to check out ... but if you don't have access to a library ... it is well worth the price.

I have two "magic" books by Rosemary Clark. She refers to it as Esoteric Wisdom.
I have "the Sacred Tradition in Ancient Egypt" and "Sacred Magic of Ancient Egypt." found here ... http://www.llewellyn.com/product.php?ean=9781567181302
From reviewing the books, I can see she has incorporated different eras of thought into what appears to be "all encompassing" time frame. I believe some of her timing is off on when particular practices where done, but all in all, I think she does offer some good information.

What do you all think about her books?
