Magia Naturalis (in English, Natural Magic) is a work of popular science first published in Naples in 1558. Its twenty books include observations upon geology, optics, medicines, poisons, cooking, metallurgy and magnetism as well as cosmetics, perfumes, gunpowder and invisible writing. Its sources include the ancient world learning of Pliny the Elder and Theophrastus as well as numerous scientific observations made by Della Porta.
