The Esoteric Orders and Their Work by Dion Fortune
Publication: 1962 Llewellyn Publications; Saint Paul
Originally published in 1928 by Rider & Co, A study of the various esoteric traditions in the West, along with practical advice on the use of ritual, the powers of oaths and obligations, the meaning of initiation, and the selection of an occult group or school. Although complete and independent in itself, Fortune regarded her later publication "The Training and Work of an Initiate" as effectively a companion-volume.
