Black magic and sorcery have been practiced through the ages with the aid of certain writings which were jealously guarded for uncounted centuries. Such works are the 'Black Books' of the Magicians. They contain spells, charms and the methods for making powerful talismans; the rituals of raising spirits through the Magical Circle - the whole gamut of supernatural power and its attaining. This volume includes the entire text of the four books of the Secrets of Albertus Magnus, the Book of the Spirits, the Almadel, the Book of Power, the Clavicle and the Testament (of Solomon), the Grimoire of Honorius the Great, and the processes of the Black Pact as given by the True Grimoire and the Great (Grand) Grimoire. These have been translated from medieval French, Latin, Hebrew and other languages, and are fully explained in the author's comments.
