The Greater Key of Solomon by Macgregor Mathers
1914 The DeLaurence Company; Chicago- Later Reprint
MacGregor Mathers was founder of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. This copy is an unauthorized pirated edition by renowned book pirate, plagiarist, and publisher L.W. DeLaurance. De Laurence had the dishonorable reputation of taking other peoples work; rearranging the typography and reissuing them under his name. His books of course have now become exceedingly collectible and is even considered an early pioneer of occult book selling; being the first to offer such works via mail order process. This edition has the copyright date of 1914 and preface dated 1916; as is the case with all works published by de Laurence we don’t have an actual print date.
