My father,the Late Nana Baafuo Dwuma Brempong, King of Kumawu Traditional Area, who gave this book to me once said,"it is valuable among all my possessions, valuable than silver or gold". Besides the Holy Bible, this book is the greatest among all the books in my possession. Ever since I had this book, my heart desire has been to put the operation into action. I also intend to buy the new translation by George Dehn.

This is a book that every conjurer would hate to read as the top secret of their art is told hier.

This translation of Abramelin has been the most widely available for over a hundred years. Many books that have been written since then have based on or about this work making it one of the most influential books on magick of all time. Others whom have since done translations of the work have commented how excellent a translator Mathers was. The problem being that Mathers translated from an incomplete and faulty French manuscript formerly located at the Biblioteque l'Arsenal in Paris. Evidently the manuscript was missing whole chapters, another whole part and that many of the number squares that are important to the operation are incorrect. You would do much better if you are seriously considering performing this operation to consult the more more recently translated version of the " Book of Abramelin " translated by Guth and Dehn published in English in 2006. The old version translated by Mathers can only now serve as perhaps an introduction to the Abramelin system and as a curiosity to which to compare the later version.
