Most LAShTAL.COM readers will already be aware of the new edition of this book, as rumors about its imminent publication have been circulating for some time.
It is a completely new translation of the book widely known as The Book Of The Sacred Magic Of Abra-Melin The Mage, which includes a previously unpublished fourth part. The work was of course first translated into English by S. L. MacGregor Mathers of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, over a hundred years ago. It soon gained a reputation as one of the few genuine – and extremely powerful – works of ritual magick and was held in high regard by many, including of course Aleister Crowley. This new translation is drawn from careful comparisons of several previously unknown manuscript versions of the work, and is significantly improved, both in substance and readability, from the Mathers text, and contains much new material. It also has a new Introduction by well known Thelemic author Lon Milo DuQuette.
To quote the publishers:
“For over a century the Abramelin has served as an important part of every serious magicians’s library, for it presents a program of self-purification and initiation for achieving The Knowledge and Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel. What most magicians and historians did not realize was that the French manuscript Mathers translated was an incomplete and inaccurate rendition of the original German manuscripts. ….. Those familiar with Mathers’s edition will note some rather startling differences: an additional book of practical spells that was left out of the French translation, important distinctions in the Abramelin operation, and magical squares that were either incomplete or transposed incorrectly in the French manuscript.”
