Limited leather quarter bound collector's edition. Solomonic magic is a major part of the grimoire tradition. This volume is about the methods of Solomonic magic used in Alexandria and how they have been passed via Byzantium (the Hygromanteia), to the manuscripts of the Latin Clavicula Salomonis and its English incarnation as the Key of Solomon. Jewish techniques like the use of pentacles, oil and water skrying were added along the way, but Solomonic magic (despite its name) remained basically a classical Greek form of magic. Amazingly, this transmission has involved very few changes and the technology of magic has remained firmly intact. The emphasis in this book is upon specific magical techniques such as the invocation of the gods, the binding of demons, the use of the four demon Kings, and the construction of the circle and lamen. The requirements of purity, sexual abstinence, and fasting have changed little in the last 2000 years, and the real reasons for that are explained. The use of amulets, talismans and phylacteries or lamens is outlined along with their methods of construction. The structure of a Solomonic evocation puts into perspective the reasons for each step, the use of thwarting angels, achieving invisibility, sacrifice, love magic, treasure finding, and the binding, imprisoning and licensing of spirits. The facing directions and timing of evocations have always been crucial, and these too have remained consistent. Practical considerations such as choice of incense, the timing of the cutting of the wand, utilisation of rings and statues, use of the Table of Evocation, or the acquisition of a familiar spirit are also explained. Techniques of Solomonic Magic is thus a follow on book from Techniques of Graeco-Egyptian Magic. This volume is based on the magicians own handbooks rather than the opinions of theologians, historians, anthropologists, sociologists or legislators. The emphasis is on what magicians actually did and why. Tools used by magicians in 7th century Alexandria, 15th century Constantinople and 19th century London are very much the same. More than 70 illustrations (many in colour) of magical equipment like the wand, the sword, wax images and magical gems, drawn from a wide range of manuscripts are reproduced and examined. This is the most detailed analysis of Solomonic magic, from the inside, ever penned.

Founded in 1971 by Elizabeth Pepper, the art director of Gourmet magazine for many years, The Witches’ Almanac is a witty, literate, and sophisticated publication that appeals to general readers as well as hard-core Wiccans. At one level, it is a pop reference that will fascinate anyone interested in folklore, mythology, and culture, but at another, it is the most sophisticated and wide-ranging annual guide available today for the mystical enthusiast. Modeled after the Old Farmers’ Almanac, it includes information related to the annual Moon calendar (weather forecasts and horoscopes) as well as legends, rituals, herbal secrets, mystic incantations, interviews, and many a curious tale of good and evil. Although it is an annual publication, only about 15 percent of the content is specific to the date range of each issue. The Witches’ Almanac features more than 140 pages of interesting and timeless articles about witchcraft, magic, herbalism, charms, spells, and related topics written by authors from the witchcraft and magical communities. The theme of Issue 36 (Spring 2017 – Spring 2018) is Water: Our Primal Source. Included are “The Coffin Ring,” “A Beekeeper’s Year,” “The Margate Grotto,” “Speaking in Tongues,” “Poppets,” and “Thomas the Rhymer.”

The Egyptians were famous in the ancient world for their knowledge of magic. Religion, medicine, technology and what we would call magic co-existed without apparent conflict, and it was not unusual for magical and 'practical' remedies to be used side by side.

Mightiest Sea Spirit

Dr. Faust's Mightiest Sea-Spirit is an anthology of four Faustian Grimoires dealing mainly with the subject of spirits of the sea and of the water. This is the first time that these texts are published in English and we are also proud to be the first to print the Manuscript Beschw�rung und Ruf des Meergeistes Doctoris Fausti (Darmstadt Hs-831) among them. The overall importance of this publication is in the unique magical techniques found in these texts, the expansion of the spirits' mythos found in other catalogues like the Ars Goetia and in the availability of this crucial text within the Faustian Tradition.It includes the following texts: Dr. Faust's Greatest and Most Powerful Sea-Spirit This is one of the most important and unique grimoires of the Faustian tradition. It deals with spirits best known from Weyer's Pseudomonarchia Daemonum and the Lesser Key of Solomon (Forneus, Vepar, Cerberus, Furfur and Zaleos). The techniques of this text are unique, and it is considered one of the clearest examples of the use of esoteric imagination within a ritual setting.Conjuration and Call of the Sea-Spirit of Doctor Faust (Darmstadt Hs-831) This manuscript deals with the conjuration of the water spirit Quirumudai who is to serve the magician as a familiar spirit. It instructs the magician on how to perform a pact with this spirit and to attaint his help whenever he is needed. Veritable Jesuit Coercion of Hell This text is not to be confused with Verus Jesuitarum Libellus. It deals with the conjurations of the spirit Tarafael to have him bring the magician different sorts of treasure from the depths of the sea and on how he can retrieve such in case the gold is buried on the earth. Arcanum Experientia Praetiosum This grimoire deals specifically with the subject of dream incubation, common in Graeco-Egyptian magic but rarer in Solomonic and Faustian magic.
