Book Details + Condition: The Lesser Key of
Solomon; Goetia: The Book of Evil Spirits. De Laurence had many undated reprints of his volumes — and while this copy has the copyright date 1916, we believe it likely to be the first printing of
the de Laurence edition, due to the title page imprint "De Laurence, Scott
& Co." The company ceased to exist in 1920, at which point “Scott”
was dropped from the name. The Lesser Key of Solomon is a grimoire, or guide containing 200 diagrams and seals for
invocations and convocation of spirits. Necromancy, witchcraft and black art.
Translated from the ancient manuscripts in the British Museum, London.
