S. L. MacGregor Mathers (1854-1918) was a prominent scholar and leader of the occult movement in Britian at the turn of the century. A life-long fascination with mysticism and Celtic symbolism led Mathers to hold high office in the Rosicrucian Society of England, and eventually to become a founder of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. He is also well known for having been a key tutor to Aleister Crowley.

"The Key of Solomon the King: Clavicula Salomonis" is the classic grimoire, or book of magic, incorrectly attributed to the ancient King Solomon who reigned over Israel during the 9th century B.C.

Detailed within this volume are many examples of ritualistic magic typical to the ancient world. Presented here in this volume is the English translation of the famous modern occultist S. L. MacGregor Mathers based on an edition of the Latin manuscripts of the British Library as edited by L. W. de Laurence in his 1914 publication.
