"The Art of Evocation: A review of the Grand Key of Solomon the King"

Ishtar Publishing is a publishing house specializing in the translation of ancient Arabic magical texts into the English language. In this respect they are one of a kind and in my opinion provides a great service to the occult community of which they should be commended. I have reviewed one of their titles before on my blog, Nineveh Shadrah's Magic Squares and Tree of Life: Western Mandalas of Power. I have just finished reading their recent publication, the highly anticipated Grand Key of Solomon the King: Ancient Handbook of Angel Magic and Djinn Summoning.

As the title suggest this text belongs to the so-called Solomonian magical traditions and occult lore Which has been preserved through different so called "Grimoire", or working manuals in the art of summoning spirit, through the late middle ages or early renaissance until today . In most cases these texts are straightforward and void of any or Esoteric Theosophical speculation as to the how or why of the existence and nature of supramundane Being and Corresponding planes. These books thus presuppose that the reader is well versed with or initiated into a magical world view that is based upon a Hermetic and Qabalistic tradition. This is also the case with the Grand Key of Solomon the King.
