At long last it is time for the final literary release of 2018 and one of the most important grimoires ever concocted. Standing at 259 pages, it’s also full length.
The Lesser Key of Solomon is actually a compilation of other works from the same era- the initial variant compiled by none other than Mathers and Crowley themselves contained five works- the Ars Goetia, Theurgia Goetia, Ars Paulina, Almadel, and the Ars Notoria (shortened to Nova in some variants.) The material is variable, beginning with the most demonic and then progressing through natural spirits, airy spirits, the angelic, and then the strictly divine.
Since the Notoria is actually centuries earlier I have omitted it in this edition. It has been re-edited with care and completely re-illustrated. I am quite happy with the final appearance. One of the most important occult compilations finally available here, reworked entirely, and for a cost significantly lower than the apparent competitors (please note that three of the Amazon titles under the moniker “Lesser Key” only include the Goetia, and are not complete works.)

This short grimoire is almost purely white magick; as a series of aphorisms in septenary form, it differentiates types of magick and some philosophy therein. This is one of the re-edited early works I crafted which needed a new format and never got an individual entry. It’s well written, and due to its largely positive, angelic content, largely escaped censoring through time.
This is one of the four (true) works comprising the Lesser Keys of Solomon (the Notoria is not of the same era.) Less well known than the Ars Goetia, it is nonetheless 1. a distinct work and 2. important to the general tradition it is part of; specifically, it is an astrological work before anything else, which fails to give the sort of detailed list of powers for each of the angels it purports to allow one to summon.
It is broken into two sections. The first details the angels of the hours and the second one the twelve signs of the zodiac. In both cases, seals are constructed and used with a complex table of practice in combination with several invocations. It’s quite a good work overall albeit shorter than the Goetia it shares tradition with.
