The rare manuscript of magical art is from a private collection
previously inaccessible to scholars...

This is a scarce and important handwritten grimoire possibly copied from an earlier 18th century source, the authors own notes to the contents as well as its style suggest it is a personal copy not for circulation or even private viewing partaking of both the Solomonic grimoire tradition as well as the English ‘Cunning Man’ type of manuscript.

The ‘Edward Hunter’ of the title page may have been a Bristol based merchant and one who later had links to the Mormon groups in the United States, thus connecting two worlds between which the erudite Professor Joseph Peterson had suggested a link.

The original manuscript

The original manuscript has remained unseen and safe in a private collection since its creation in or around the early 1830s, only once having been shown to a specialist (the alchemical scholar Adam McLean in the 1980s) and which fact is mentioned by Professor Peterson in his edition of ‘The Clavis or Key to the Magic of Solomon’ a vastly erudite work on the transmission of Solomonic magical manuscripts from Ebenezer Sibley through Frederick Holland and Frederick Hockley through to MacGregor Mathers and his late 19th century edition of ‘The Key of Solomon the King’.
