It's about time a version like this was puslished. June 20 2009
By W. Reck - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The Key of Solomon is perhaps THE single grimoire to own. It's a treasure trove of ancient magickal practice. It gives detailed instructions on how Solomon prepared everything from parchment to talismans, to magickal tools. Reading it you can't help but feel as though Solomon is teaching you.

I actually think some parts of it give better instruction than some of todays grimoires. Although you'll probally never find the resources to actually practice anything in the book, it is THE must add title to any library of magickal studies.

The best bar none! July 26 2013
By Metatron - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is Vol IV of the `Sourceworks of Ceremonial Magic Series` and what a great grimoire to own. The Veritable Key of Solomon is by far the best Key in print, its not only a scholarly work but a work of art with absolutely stunning Talismans which are something to behold. This is a translation of three completely new French texts from 1796 which gives a complete workable system. The Veritable Key of Solomon has it all, a vast amount of Pentacles, Olympic Spirits, Planetary Spirits, Intelligences, Prayers, Names of Angels & Demons, Implements and Procedures etc... This grimoire is very impressive in every sense of the word and comes with a first rate commentary with lots of history. There are quite a varied number of editions, a black and white hardback, a full colour hardback, two different limited edition half leathers in full colour and a full leather edition in colour. When this grimoire arrived on the scene the ground shook, and for a very good reason and is not a text you want to pass on!

Great scholarship Feb. 19 2013
By Joshua S. Bailey - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As always, this pair of occult scholars have done their homework. The book is full of information, cross referenced with other existing manuscripts, and filled with Goetic information that, up until now, has remained unpublished. Great for the occult scholar, armchair sorcery enthusiast, and historian of magic and literature.

The most complete version of the Key. April 12 2009
By Linus Nestor - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I own the half leather limited edition with color plates of this book. It was obvious long before it was released that this would be something totally different then Mathers version. Tons of research went in to this book that have changed the way many of us see the key now. Just the amount of different versions David and Stephen found while researching for it shows that modern magicians have underestimated its role among earlier magicians. This was probably the first grimoire that the earlier magicians got a hold of and one could ask them self if it might have been considered a primer back then.

The book it self present one of the most complete and complex manuscripts available of the key. There are practically tons of earlier not published information that are crucial for the understanding of the grimoire tradition. The commentary gives us an enormous insight and theories from two of the best grimoire scholars and magicians of today.

If you ever buy a grimoire let it be this one and it will amaze you.

Disappointing April 5 2009

Veritable Key of Solomon (Sourceworks of Ceremonial Magic Series)

As a fan of Skinner's careful and scholarly "Terrestrial Astrology: Divination by Geomancy" I was very much looking forward to this new edition of the "Key". The old Mathers compilation has needed some competition for a very long time, and I thought that this might be it. Unfortunately the "Veritable Key" does not shed much light on poor old Solomon. Instead it presents copies of three, rather muddled and confusingly edited "Key" manuscripts (there are hundreds of others that might have been selected). One of the chosen manuscripts is an obviously late confection that has been scrambled together with irrelevant matter from Agrippa and Abano, which is of no help to either the practicing magician or indeed to the student of grimoire history, except perhaps as an example of how to fake a grimoire to sell to the gullible. Why this particular ms should have been selected is beyond me. Furthermore, a work as ambitious as the "Veritable Key" pretends to be needs far more careful and knowledgable editorial attention than has apparently been bestowed on it to make it readable or useful. The editors would have been wise to follow the example of Joseph Peterson's excellent edition of the "Lesser Key" to see how it could be done.
