Napoleons Oraculum: The Book of Fate (Paperback)
Napoleon's Oraculum is one of the foremost fortune-telling works of its era. Based in part on the system found in the earlier British work "The Philosophical Merlin," it purports to deliver to the reader a system of divination once used by Napoleon Bonaparte himself to govern his conquests. This edition of the work, earlier than other American endeavors at crafting such a system, adds to the Oraculum itself an elaborate series of passages by which playing cards, dice, dominoes, and other means can be used to divine fortunes. Altogether, it is perhaps the finest pre-modern work of its type ever made.
