different types of magick, do you want beginners guides? Earth Magic by Scott Cunningham is good. each chapter focuses on a different type of magick, even includes a few spells. it's good if you don't know what path you wish to go into.
divination, again, what type do you want?
beginners guides for Wicca, anything by Raymond Buckland or Scott Cunningham is a good one. there are many different paths to Wicca, Buckland created his own, but he also writes about the original Gardnerian Wicca [as he trained under Gerald Gardner] Scott Cunningham was a solitary practitioner, either one is good.
high and low magick, theres many types, so you might want to be more specific. also, do you want history, or just spells. i have plenty of books titled 'high magick' or 'natural magick' or many other things and it's just spell after spell after spell without much explanation because the writer assumed the user knew what they were doing and didn't need any beginners information to be included.
