Morning of the Magicians

Le Matin des magiciens was a book written by Louis Pauwels and Jacques Bergier in 1960 or in October 1959.[citation needed] It was first published in English in 1963 with the title The Morning of the Magicians. A German edition was published with the title Aufbruch ins dritte Jahrtausend (Departure into the third Millennium).

The book is a general overview of the occult and the works of Charles Fort. Le Matin des magiciens was highly influential[citation needed] in the way it presented occult subjects to a popular audience and spawned many books imitating its style.

The English edition, The Morning of the Magicians, became an international best seller, with over 800,000 copies sold worldwide.[citation needed] The book was a collaboration of ideas spanning a wide variety of subjects from Nazi occultism to supernatural phenomena and the place of mankind in the universe relative to traditional philosophical positions.
