TURNER, Robert (translated from the Latin by) with Commentaries by Apollonius of Tyanaeus.

Ars Notoria. The Notory Art of Solomon Shewing the Canalistical Key of Magical Operations, the Liberal Sciences, Divine Revelation, and the Art of Memory.

[Seattle]: [Trident Books], [1988]. Second edition. Original wrappers. Octavo. 76pp. One black and white illustration.

Former owner has drawn small crosses on the front and back covers, as well as on page edges. It is unclear if this was done to ward off evil or some reason like that, though I like to think that this was the intention. Former owner’s name and phone numbers, plus an additional sentence on rear fly leaf. A very good copy of this rarely seen edition.

“The Ars Notoria, the magical art of memory, flourished during the Middle Ages, although its origins are attributed to Solomon and Apollonius of Tyana. It was a process by which the magician could instantly gain knowledge or memory of all the arts and sciences. Each branch of knowledge or subject area was assigned a set of magical seals and characters known as notae. To set the process into operation, the appropriate notae were contemplated whilst reciting angelic names and magical orisons. However, it was regarded as a diabolical form of magic, since the knowledge was quickly acquired from ‘demons’ without honest study” - Robert Turner (Elizabethan Magic). This edition is shorter than later editions issued by Trident. It does not include the supplemental material by Adam McLean. Quite the oddity.
