This is the first quality trade paperback of one of the most famous (or infamous) magical texts of the Seventeenth Century. A complete compendium of magic as understood by the Elizabethan magus. It contains detailed instructions for the conjuration and control of spirits. It is considered by many to be the primary source work in goetic evocation.

There have been two previous publications of the Lemegeton compendium, but this is the first trade-quality edition offered to the public. Unlike the previous four-part editions, Henson, the editor, frankly admits that he is omitting the Ars Notoria (5th Book) because it really isn't in keeping with the other four works in the collection. (Fortunately the Ars Notoria is available from Trident in Seattle). Jeff Wellman should be complimented on his meticulous work redrawing the hundreds of sigils. Unlike Crowley's artist, Wellman did not distort the designs to make them fit into circles. This is appreciated. Henson's introduction is short, but covers the essentials. If you haven't already bought a complete Lemegeton (and even if you have), this is the one to get. Of course it would be nice to have a leather bound edition on parchment paper, but this handsome paperback, is the best yet, and by far the most reasonably priced.From the Author:
I have gained some experience in the field of occult science over the last 25 years. I was somewhat chagrined to learn that no one had ever produced a readable complete Lemegeton at a price that the general reading public could afford. After some soul searching I took on the project. I very pleased with the results.
