Father of all grimoires, The Key of Solomon the King is the most famous of all magick books for summoning and mastering Spirits. It has influenced everything from the revival of Magick and the Western Traditions up to fictional works such as Lovecraft’s Necronomicon.
Alleged to have been written by King Solomon himself, the book provides instructions, prayers, rituals and Pentacles used to call upon, control and communicate with Spirits and Demons. Those practicing magick have used it extensively through the centuries, but its true origins and purpose have been lost in the mists of time.
No library of the occult student or practicing magician is complete without this tome. It remains a standard of esoteric lore by which others are measured.
S. L. MacGregor Mathers (1854-1918) was a prominent scholar and leader of the occult movement in Britian at the turn of the century. A lifelong fascination with mysticism and Celtic symbolism led Mathers to hold high office in the Rosicrucian Society of England, and eventually to become a founder of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. He is also well known for having been a key tutor to Aleister Crowley.
