Chicago: The de Laurence Company, 1916. Reprint. Dated 1916 but most likely a more recent printing as De Laurence never updated publication dates. Hardcover. Quarto. Black cloth with gilt titles to front. No text on spine. 104 pages. With numerous illustrations of seals and pentacles. Light rubbing and edge wear to boards. Evidence of string ties to front showing light bumps to edges. Wehman Bros. stamp to bottom of title page. One page with 5 lines underlined in red. Otherwise a very good copy. Very Good. Hardcover.

Thankfully, de Laurence has spared us any pompous ramblings in the form of a foreword or introduction; just some excessive verbiage on the title page this time around. The text is a facsimile of a hand-written manuscript thought to be written by Robert T. Cross, under the pseudonym "Raphael" in 1879. This manuscript was copied from a manuscript translation of "The Key or Clavis of Rabbi Solomon" that had evidently belonged to Ebenezer Sibly, with additional material from the works of Cornelius Agrippa and Francis Barrett.
