The Sixth and Seventh Book of Moses
Publication: DeLaurance Edition (No Date- but based on the style of the cloth and paper used this is most likely a 1950s print)
"The Sixth and Seventh Books of Moses" is arguably one of the most influential of all the grimoires. It contains a series of magical incantations, spells and seals purportedly from the lost magical Books of the Biblical prophet Moses. The work apparently originated in Germany and then spread to America via the Pennsylvania Dutch, and their "pow-wow" books. It began to appear in print in the late nineteenth century, and became popular in the African American South and also in the Caribbean, and West Africa, making its mark on the Hoodoo, Rastifarian, and various African religious movements, as well as on European and American occultists. This edition was published by Lauron William de Laurence (1868 - 1936), renowned book pirate, plagiarist, and publisher of occult literature.
