Book: The Testament of Solomon by Chester Charlton McCown

This book contains the "Testament of Solomon," edited from manuscripts at mount Athos, Bologna, Holkham Hall, Jerusalem, London, Milan, Paris, and Vienna. Originally written in Greek in the early 1st millennium CE, the "Testament of Solomon" is an Old Testament work ascribed to King Solomon recounting how he built his temple with a magic ring that allowed him to command demons. This volume is highly recommended for those with an interest in demonology and the Old Testament, and it would make for a fantastic addition to collections of allied literature. Contents include: "General Character and Contents," "Description of the Manuscripts," "Modern Editions, Translations, and Treatises," "The Textual History of the Testament," "Language and Style," "The Chief Ideas of the Testament," "Sources and Relationships of the Subject Matter," "The Testament in Literature and History," etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with the original text and artwork. This book was first published in 1921.
