• An expanded and revised edition including new historical research and some thirty new magical recipes.

• The only modern translation of this crucial magical sourcework.

This is a new and expanded second edition of The Book of Abramelin, a modern classic of Magic since it was first published in English by Ibis Press in 2006. This edition includes new material, copious footnotes and an extensive index.

It is the first modern translation of this critical magical work since S.L. Macgregor Mathers’s original translation over 100 years ago. Not only is the language updated, but Georg Dehn, the compiler and editor, has sourced his work from all extant manuscripts, whereas Mathers used just one. The result is a stunning new translation which has already set the occult world abuzz. It includes voluminous important material left out of Mathers’ work, including an entire Part 2 filled with magical recipes, important distinctions in the Knowledge and Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel ritual, and complete word grids that had been left half-completed by Mathers.

About the Author
Abraham von Worms, long thought to be a pseudonymous figure, is nearly conclusively proved to be the well-known 14th century Jewish scholar, Rabbi Jacob ben Moses ha Levi Moellin, more commonly known as MaHaRIL. Some material attributed to him is still used in synagogues today. Georg Dehn is a life-long student of all things esoteric, which led him on the quest to not only translate The Book of Abramelin, but also to follow in the original seeker’s footsteps through the Middle East and eventually to the hermitage at Araki. He is the founder and publisher of Edition Araki, a German publishing company specializing in the occult. Dehn is the author of many works, Abramelin being the first to be translated into English. He lives in Leipzig, Germany.

Reviews

  1. :

    “Stay simple, remain religious, and be considerate. In this way you will experience more good things than I can tell you about.” This mystical tome has stood for over a century as perhaps the most important medieval magical text of all. Georg Dehn’s magnificent new revised, corrected, and expanded edition captures its essence even better than in the first English publication a decade ago. Herein is Wisdom.
    —James Wasserman, author of
    In the Center of the Fire and The Temple of Solomon

  2. :

    This translation of The Book of Abramelin should be a necessary addition to the library of any student of the Western Magical tradition. Previously, there was only the translation by S. L. Mathers from the defective copy in the Bibliothèque de l’Arsenal in Paris, containing many omissions and errors. This translation, based on better manuscripts, is scholarly and comprehensive, filling in many gaps in our understanding of this enigmatic work. At last, we can see the real Book of Abramelin.
    —J. Daniel Gunther, author of
    The Angel and the Abyss and Initiation in the Aeon of the Child

  3. :

    Certainly one of the most valuable contributions to the field in the last century.
    —Joseph H. Peterson, compiler/editor of
    John Dee Five Books of Mystery and The Lesser Key of Solomon

  4. :

    I welcome this important and highly readable edition of the book that is once again destined to make a profound impact on the world of Western occultism.
    —Lon Milo DuQuette, author of
    The Key to Solomon’s Key and The Complete Enochian Dictionary
