The author: L. W. de Laurence (full name Lauron William de Laurence) was an American author and publisher on occult and spiritual topics.
His publishing company (De Laurence, Scott & Co.) and spiritual supply mail-order house were located in Chicago, Illinois. De Laurence was a pioneer in the business of supplying magical and occult goods by mail order, and his distribution of public domain books, such as Secrets of the Psalms by Godfrey Selig and Pow Wows or the Long-Lost Friend by John George Hohman had a great and lasting effect on the African American urban hoodoo community in the southern United States as well as on the development of Obeah in Jamaica.
