The Book of Abramelin

Front Cover
Nicolas-Hays, Inc., May 1, 2015 - Body, Mind & Spirit - 304 pages

This is a new and expanded second edition of The Book of Abramelin, a modern classic of Magic since it was first published in English by Ibis Press in 2006. The new material includes copious footnotes and an extensive index.

It is the first modern translation of this critical magical work since S.L. Macgregor Mathers’s original translation over 100 years ago. Not only is the language updated, but Georg Dehn, the compiler and editor, has sourced his work from all extant manuscripts, whereas Mathers used just one. The result is a stunning new translation, which has already set the occult world abuzz.
