Sepher Raziel - also called Liber Salomonis - is a full grimoire in the Solomonic tradition from a rare sixteenth century English manuscript. It is completely different from the Sepher Raziel ha-Melakh published by Steve Savedow, and is the oldest grimoire so far published in the Sourceworks of Ceremonial Magic series. It shows clear signs of its Hebrew and Greek roots, quoting both Solomon and Hermes. It contains seven treatises: Liber Clavis, concerned with astrology and its use in magic, with precise interactions between planets, Signs, and Houses; The Ala, outlining the magical virtues of stones, herbs, and animals; Tractatus Thymiamatus, which deals with incense, and perfumes used in the Art; The Treatise of Times detailing the correct hours of the day for each operation; Treatise on Purity which explains the exact preparations, and the reasons for ritual purity; Samaim, a treatise on the seven Heavens with the names of their angels; on the different heavens and their angels; and finally, The Book of Virtues and Miracles, a treatise on the Semiforas, the names of God, and how they are to be used in invocation to produce miraculous results. The Sepher Raziel text is given in two forms: a literal transcription with no changes in spelling or wording, and a full modern annotated English version. This volume also includes a foreword which offers an overview of Raziel manuscripts, which represent a number of independent traditions, an essay on the literature of Solomonic magic in English, an introduction to the Sepher Raziel manuscript itself, an appendix on incense names, botanical names and identification, a list of printed notices and manuscript sources of Sepher Raziel, and a full bibliography of printed works on Solomonic magic and items of related interest.
