The Key of Solomon (Clavicula Salomonis) was translated from Latin manuscripts within the British Library by S. L. MacGregor Mathers in 1888. "IN presenting this celebrated magical work to the student of occult science some few prefatory remarks are necessary. The Key of Solomon, save for a curtailed and incomplete copy published in France in the seventeenth century, has never yet been printed, but has for centuries remained in Manuscript form inaccessible to all but the few fortunate scholars to whom the inmost recesses of the great libraries were open. I therefore consider that I am highly honoured in being the individual to whose lot it has fallen to usher it into the light of day." S.L MacGregor Mathers, London, 1888
