"…The process of learning is the process of discovering what really exists….” says Peter Brent in The World of the Sufi. The texts made public in The Secret Lore of Magic do exist, and have existed for some time, but largely out of sight. They are provided to the reader as a “…comprehensive reference system…”, as the basis upon which rests that magical world of sorcerers, conjuration and rumour previously shrouded in fantasy and desire. Whether any part of it “really exists”, who knows, but Shah researched, translated and provides the essential materials.

Albertus Magnus advises placing the stone “Bena” (which is like a Beastes tooth) under the tongue so that you “…may conjecture and tell of things to come.” And, in A Book of Spells, The Marvels of the World, [number VII, Like Affects Like], says that “…the turners of one metal into another called Alchemists know….how like nature entreth and rejoyceth his like…” I may find that unconvincing and “Bena” a nonsensical term, but Albert the Great, whose last name suggests loadstone and “amalgam”, replies [number IX] “…every man dispiseth the things whereof he knoweth nothing, and that hath done no pleasure to him.”

Nowadays, of course, there is academic and other research into the sociological influence of the occult and this book perhaps prefigured that in its cultural and psychological approach. Shah goes further than that, and a reviewer on Amazon UK has helpfully indicated the rationale for Shah’s two books on magic as - information, prevention and a suggestion that there are, also, forces beyond the ordinary. Well worth buying for all those reasons. Plus, if you did want to bind a few spirits, this, I suppose, would be the book!

This book is almost impossible to find, but it is by far the most authentic collection of reference or "cook books" concerning the actual practices of sorcery, necromancy, demonology and the creation of amulets and talismans in existence. Most of the other books available on the subjects of witchcraft and sorcery are either modern fabrications or selected excerpts from this book. Whether one is a practitioner or has a sociological/historical interest in the subject, this book is a must-have.

Its very sad that it doesn’t give you a full description of the book nor free sample. This book is about black magic and demon invocations. It’s a very dangerous book for people who has no idea the consecuences of it.

This classic brings together translations of a half-dozen of the most important medieval 'grimoires' - magicians' how-to books of the late middle ages and renaissance. It includes the Greater Key of Solomon, the Goetia of the Lemegeton, the Ars Almadel, the Grimoirium Verum, Albertus Magnus' Natural Magic, and excerpts from Agrippa. All are presented in a raw form, free of the various 'corrections' (and expurgations) of Mathers and Waite.

The book *is* hard to find, and has been removed from all of Shah's booklists that i can find. It has become, in its own right, a hidden and forbidden volume. If you can find it, it remains unmatched for all-in-one-place lore.

This book, which is out of print and quite hard to find a copy of (took me 3 years to find a copy myself, and then finally it was through Amazon), is one of Idries Shah's more esoteric ones. In fact the book is not listed on any of the books-lists under his name (for instance you can look at [...]
This book is truly a treasure-house when it comes to esoteric material and I can only recommend it.
But I will also draw attention to some of I. Shahs other books, for instance "Learning How to Learn" and "The Sufis".
