The Lesser Key of Solomon: Goetia: The Book of Evil Spirits by DR. L.W. de LAURENCE

2017 Reprint of 1916 Edition.  Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software.  “The Lesser Key of Solomon,” also known as “Clavicula Salomonis Regis” or “Lemegeton,” is an anonymous grimoire (or spell book) on demonology.  It was compiled in the mid-17th century, mostly from materials a couple of centuries older.  It is divided into five books—the Ars Goetia, Ars Theurgia-Goetia, Ars Paulina, Ars Almadel, and Ars Notoria.  This edition was edited by L. W. De Laurence and first published in 1916.  Though considered  a plagiarism of the Mathers/Crowley edition, it is none the less an interesting contribution to the history of the literature and a scarce book in its own right.  Profusely illustrated.
