The Key of Solomon the King
Translated and Edited from Manuscripts in the British Museum by S. Liddell MacGregor Mathers. One of the most famous of all magical textbooks. The Key of Solomon the King, was translated by S. Liddell MacGregor Mathers, who was a well known 19th century magician and head of the Order of the Golden Dawn. The ancient manuscripts were found in the British Museum and are believed to be the actual words and instructions of King Solomon himself. In these texts he instructs his followers on how to summon and master spiritual powers, including how to obtain answers to problems from the spirit world. A section called "Solomon, the Wise Man" details nothing of his magic, but shares many stories of Solomon's great wisdom. This same kind of wisdom is an important prerequisite to engaging in this magical work. The work hare can be very powerful. The processes involved show the complexity in which European ritual magic was performed. This book also explains how the choice of time and place, preparation procedures, incaptations, fasting, robes, fumigations, and various trappings play an integral part in the annals of magic. Other topics include days, hours, and virtues of the planets, prayers and conjurations, medals and pentacles, invisibility, magic carpets, and more.
