Holmes Publishing Group, 1999. Item #399-X
A FINE COPY, hand-bound with special papers. Translated from the Hebrew by Dr. Gaster, this work focuses on the use of magical names and the sacred days of the seven planets (or Archangels). Gaster believed the manuscript he was working from survived in the possession of certain Spanish kabbalists and rabbis. Extending from these fragments, he seeks the possible origin of the text in the Chaldean tradition as he knew that the ancient gnosis claimed Chaldean genesis for its magical parts. With additional illustrations prepared for this volume.. Hand-bound wraps. Kabbalistic-Grimoire Series 19.
