His translations are always clear and as direct as possible, comparing as many good sources as he can, and extensively footnoted, giving not only the differences between the sources, but also noting similarities to other books most notably, of course, to The Lesser Key of Solomon: Lemegeton Clavicula Salomonis , and providing reasoning for why a particular iteration was chosen over another. Just as importantly, he also fills in blanks: which Psalm is being reference, for example, or providing the text of an invocation mentioned in another grimoire.

To the text itself: This is a particularly fascinating grimoire for a number of reasons. For one thing, it is one of very few which overtly discusses calling upon and making agreements with the so-called "infernal powers" such as Lucifer and Astaroth.

But this is only "evil" from an orthodox Christian perspective. The entire grimoire tradition, or more generally the tradition of sorcery and witchcraft throughout Christian Europe which it partially represents, holds within it many survivals of the Greco-Egyptian magical papyri, which themselves contain magical and shamanic practices from the entire Roman and Hellenic world.

In any case, the so-called "Solomonic" literary corpus arose at least partially from something more primal than institutional European Christianity, and the GV in particular bears that mark more than most. The relative simplicity of the material is refreshing when compared to Lemegeton, giving it more the feel of certain forms of Tantra than of anything especially Abrahamic. Even the demonology lacks many of the hallmarks of Abrahamic theology, allowing the "infernal spirits" to be more or less what they are—cthonic beings, to be sure, but not therefore evil—with a minimum of commentary.

Beyond the demonology portion, though, there are some fascinating examples of folk magic spells, charms, and formulae which would be right at home in Pow-Wows: Long Lost Friend, a Collection of Mysteries and Invaluable Arts and Remedies or any number of pamphlets found in a hoodoo shop. Even some of these spells are deeper than they appear, referring again to the more primordial traditions. See, for example, "For the discovery of a treasure" pg 67 , or the entire section entitled "The Great Kabbalah of the Green Butterfly" pg 61 and you will see the visionary nature of these rituals, both of which have the character of an initiation.

So, do I recommend this book? If you are interested in the essence of the grimoire tradition, if you practice hoodoo or any of the Afro-diasporic religions, or even if you wish to see what a European Tantra might look like, this book is an absolute must-have and alone could be the cornerstone of an entire practice.
