Comments: The Kabbala was a magic periodical originally published in the 1970's, and has been republished in several forms. According to Genii's Magicpedia, volume 2 stalled at issue 8, and Volume 3 restarted in 1976. A complete edition of Volume 3 was produced by Tannen's Magic in softcover. In 1980 and 1981, Danny Korem compiled hardcover editions of each volume. He added the four missing editions of Volume 2 to the second book, and during the research, enough additional material was found to produce a fourth volume Lost Pages of Kabbala (info from the introduction to Lost Pages). All the volumes combined were later re-released as The Legendary Kabbala by Paul Fried. Also, Tannen's released a softcover version of Kabbala in 1976.
