A Catalog of manuscripts of John Dee, books on Dee and his works, biographical material about John Dee.
On this page you can download all John Dee's and related books (64) in one zip archive or get them on CD.

The major purpose of this page is to distribute primary-source materials relevant to the "Enochian" work of John Dee and Edward Kelly, particularly reconstructions of original manuscripts of John Dee, books on Dee and his Works and also Biographical Material about John Dee.

The collection offered is especially interesting in that it covers Dee in all his complexity, and does not focus on only one aspect of his life. Thus while there is an obvious focus on Dee's magical work, other facets of his life: his geographical and mathematical pursuits for example, are also covered. Understandably there is a special emphasis on books written by Dee (including a section on works falsely attributed to him), but it also has biographies, studies, fictional accounts of his life, and an unusually good selection of works by modern commentators who have personally explored his Enochian system.

All of the materials here are presented in Adobe Acrobat PDF format, as it is accessible to users of most computer platforms. The Adobe Acrobat Reader also allows one to view the graphics in high resolution, and to print them out on laser printers with high quality. The latest version of the Acrobat Reader can be downloaded free from Adobe's web-site.

As is well known Dee (1527 - ca. 1608) was a London-born astronomer, astrologer, geographer, and mathematician, with a passion for alchemy and the occult arts, who served for a time as a consultant to Queen Elizabeth I. In his declining years Dee's reputation was blackened by charges of necromancy, and for several centuries his life and work were largely ignored. Then, in the late nineteenth century, historians of science began to recognize his contributions to a number of scientific disciplines, whilst the magicians of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and those who followed in their footsteps explored the marvels of his system of "Enochian magic." In the century past, the renaissance scholar has even hurdled into popular culture, making cameo appearances in a plethora of sometimes-unlikely places, from H. P. Lovecraft's short story "The Dunwich Horror" (1929), through various novels and films, to an audio version of "Doctor Who" and the Cate Blanchett film "Elizabeth:The Golden Age" (2007).
