The price at which this book is sold is unquestionably a small one, and those who obtain it for less run the risk of becoming llemegeton by studying a book which has not been properly translated and edited. This book has been published under the editorship of Dr. It is not always convenient for the student to obtain any of the precious metals, such as gold or silver to trace their Talismans and Seals upon.
In fact, metal is used very little today for this purpose, and most everybody uses Virgin Parchment Paper, made from the skin of new-born lambs, as it is much more satisfactory. Again, it is many times difficult for the student to obtain any of the different things which are to be used for burning and making a suitable fumigation for the invocation of Spirits and Occult powers.

Strong, and the Immortal Fire! Who hate that evil should be wrought in the World! I am He, that lighteneth and thundereth. I am He, Whose mouth ever flameth: I am He, the Begetter and Manif ester unto the Light: I am He; the Grace of the World: Come Thou forth, and follow Me: Such are the Words!

Truly, since our child- hood has ingrained into us not only literal belief in the Bible, but also substantial belief in Alf Tje wa Laylah, and only adolescence can cure us, we are only too liable, in the rush and energy of dawning manhood, to overturn roughly and rashly both these classics, to regard them both on the same level, as interesting kfy ments from the standpoint of folk-lore and anthropology, and as nothing more. Even when we learn that the Bible, by a profound and minute study of the text, may be forced to yield up Qabalistic arcana of cosmic scope and importance, we are too often slow to apply a similar restorative to the companion volume, even if we are the luck holders of Burton’s veritable edition.
What is the cause of my illusion of seeing a spirit in the triangle of Art? Every smatterer, every expert in psychology, will answer: Those Europeans who go a little deeper learn from Fichte, that the phenomenal Universe is the creation of the Ego; Hindus, or Europeans studying under Hindu Gurus, are told, that by Akasa is meant the Chitakasa.
By assuming higher dimensions of space, we can assimilate this fact to Realism ; but we have no need to take so much trouble. Conscious- ness is a function of the brain Huxley.

The combination of all these and reflection on their significance. These unusual impressions produce unusual brain-changes; hence their summary 6 is of unusual kind. Its projection back into the apparently phenome- nal world is therefore unusual. But can any of the effects described in this our book Goetia be obtained, and if so, can you give a rational explanation of the circumstances? I can, and will.

The names of God are vibrations calculated to estab- lish: Establishment of functions relative to the subtle world. Rank or type of the Spirit. Name of the Spirit.
The perfumes aid this through smell. Usually the perfume will only tend to control a large area ; but there is an attribution of perfumes to letters of the alphabet enabling of, by a Qabalistic formula, to spell out the Spirit’s name. I need not enter into more particular discussion of these points ; the intelligent reader can easily fill in what is lacking. Leemegeton, then, I say, with Solomon: Philosophy has nothing to say; and Science can only thee judgment, pending a proper and methodical investigation of the facts alleged.

Solomon prom- ises us that we can 1 obtain information; 2 destroy our enemies; 3 understand the voices of nature; 4 obtain treasure; 5 heal diseases, etc. It is curious to note the contrast between the noble means and the apparently vile ends of magical rituals.
