THE MAJOR KEYS

OF  SOLOMON

from the manuscript of

Eliphas Levi

Limited to 88 copies in smooth burgundy sheepskin, gilt lettering to spine, gilt pentagram device to front, green Spanish ripple marbled papers. Price per burgundy copy £180.00

DESCRIPTION: Quarto 220 pp first English Translation of Eliphas Levis manuscript copy. This manuscript was published in 1895 by Chamuel, who reproduced the drawings from the manuscript while transcribing the texts.

The text is particularly opaque and has discouraged many researchers. That’s why the current edition not only reproduces the drawings and texts, but also accompanies them with numerous annotations to clarify their meaning or correct the errors of the previous editor.

These Clés majeures et Clavicules de Salomon or Major Keys of Solomon refer as much to the Clavicula Salomonis as to the major and minor arcana of the Tarot. This grimoire contains numerous keys on the magical use of the Tarot in its relationship with Jewish Kabbalah. The present study takes into account the public elements of the autograph manuscript that belonged to Madame Christiane Buisset, as well as Eliphas Levi’s Tarot, which was found in Italy only a few years ago.
