Scholars agree that such claim is untrue, as Memphis had long been in ruin by , and that book really stems from 18th century, with the first editions appearing in French and Italian. Large portions of this short book were translated by Arthur Waite and published in The Book of Ceremonial Magic in , where Waite wrote: "The date specified in the title of the Grimorium Verum is undeniably fraudulent the work belongs to the middle of the eighteenth century, and Memphis is Rome.

For the evident classification of the 'Key' is in two books and no more. It refers to the four elements, so these would appear to be elementary spirits. A part of the account it gives regarding the hierarchy of spirits is taken from the Lemegeton, or Lesser Key of Solomon.

The work is divided into three portions. The first describes the characters and seals of the demons, with the forms of their evocation and dismissal the second gives a description of the supernatural secrets that can be learned by the power of the demons and the third is the key of the work and its proper application.

But these divisions only outline what the Grimorium Verum purports to place before the reader, since the whole work is a mass of confusion. The plates that supply the characters do not apply to the text.

The book really consists of two parts--the Grimorium Verum itself, and a second portion consisting of magic secrets. The first supplies directions for the preparation of the magician based on those of the Clavicle of Solomon. Instructions are given for the manufacture of magic instruments and for the composition of a parchment on which the characters and seals are to be inscribed, as well as the processes of evocation and dismissal.

The second part contains the "admirable secrets" of the pretended Albertus Magnus, the "Petit Albert," and so forth. The work is only partially diabolical in character, and some of its processes might be classified as white magic. Get A Copy. Kindle Edition. More Details Friend Reviews.
