The Ancient's Book of Magic Containing Secret Records of the Procedure & Practice of the Ancient Masters & Adepts by Lewis de Claremont
Publication: 1940 Doreen Publishing Co.
A popular guide to invocation and the practice of black magic. It clearly draws from a number of sources including Barrett's "The Magus," the "Goetia," etc. etc. The title on the title page (above) differs from the cover title, which reads "The Ancient's Book of Magic. Containing Secret Records of the Procedure & Practice of the Ancient Masters & Adepts." According to the copyright page the book was first published in 1936, and this edition by Dorene Publishing Co. is copyright 1940. A rather cheap production, but very much collectible.
Condition: Original black and white wrappers, quite clean with original price crossed off with red pen, pages evenly foxed throughout, clean of any markings, in nice original condition, overall Very Good
