Product Description

About the Author

Stephen Skinner began his career as a Geography lecturer and magazine publisher, but his long term interests have always been Western magic and feng shui.

During the 1970s he was the driving force behind Askin Publishers, producing a number of classic magical works by Cornelius Agrippa, Paracelsus, Austin Osman Spare, Aleister Crowley, and others. During the 1970s he co-wrote many books with Francis King, including the still popular Techniques of High Magic. Also with Francis King he wrote Nostradamus. His interest in prophecy stimulated by this book, he went on to write the best selling Millennium Prophecies.

Stephen is credited with bringing the art of Feng Shui to the West, and in 1976 he wrote the Living Earth Manual of Feng Shui, which was the first English book on feng shui in the 20th century.

Stephen has written more than 35 books, which have been published worldwide in 28 different languages. These books have had introductions by such diverse people as Colin Wilson, HRH Charles Prince of Wales, and Jimmy Choo, shoe designer to the stars.

Stephen lives in Singapore. Stephen is the first Westerner to be awarded the title of Grand Master of Feng Shui by the International Feng Shui Association.

David Rankine (Wales) has been practicing magic for twenty-five years. He gives regular talks and workshops around Europe. For more information, visit

HASH(0xa1564f30) out of 5 stars 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.

HASH(0xa1567324) out of 5 stars The best bar none! July 26 2013
By AZAZEL1066 - 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!

HASH(0xa1567a2c) out of 5 stars 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.

HASH(0xa156778c) out of 5 stars A clean translation, Perfect for any Magician. Sept. 4 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The Sourceworks of Ceremonial Magic Series is some of the best work in traditional occult grimoires the student of ceremonial magic will ever find. "The Veritable Key of Solomon" brings together Skinner & Rankine, two accomplished grimoirists and magicians whose dedication shows in this beautiful works. Cleaned up text and better translations taking from multiple manuscripts, footnotes with explanations and references, and most importantly clean and beautiful illustrations that go beyond the typicaly reprinted scans found in most other grimoires. An absolute requirement for any student of classical grimoires.

HASH(0xa1567f3c) out of 5 stars Color version made available after I bought this one March 21 2013
By Stephen Petitt - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I dropped 1 stars because this book has no color key to tell you which pentacles use which colors. There isn't even one made available online! There is a color version available (ISBN: 978-0-9557387-6-0) on the publisher's website for 40.00GBP with free shipping. Missing color aside, this is definitly the new standard version of the Greater Key of Solomon, surpassing all other versions including Sir Macgregor Mathers' 1889 edition. I support the creators of the Sourceworks of Ceremonial Magic Series and look forward to their future releases.
