Yet again Rankine has done a wonderful job by bringing previously unavailable material into the accessible realm, David has not just published one manuscript, but has included all available manuscripts, making this the most complete edition of this famous grimoire thus printed, this is a book for the practising magician, the armchair critic should stick to his local library, all of David Rankine s books are of a very high standard and I cannot recommend them enough, especially for the practising magus.

HASH(0x9609e57c) out of 5 stars Terrible intro, slipshod organization, yet marginally useful 11 Jan. 2014
By Giordano Paredros - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I agree this is very disappointing. What makes this in any way "complete" I have been researching the honorian grimoire for many years and this falls far shot of a useful presentation. Rankine is content to repeat past errors and make specious remarks vis a vis the importance of this work. It is clear he has done very little research. Let me remark also that one manuscript does not make a general statement concerning the rest of the literature. He has virtually nothing to say about the honorian ritual comprising the first part of the book. He has a penchant to take the dates of the print editions at face value, how does can he distinguish between a back dated nineteenth century colportage issue and one issued before 1800? His introduction is little more than a series of mostly irrelevant anecdotes and mistaken impressions. One of the most annoying things is that he repeats the errors he made in other works. Point: there is no 1641 Lemegeton; 1641 is an internal reference in the third part. I daresay he cannot tell the significance of the date March 10, 1641 mentioned therein. Returning to the honorian grimoire his organization is dismal, even knowing that the print dates are false he still does not follow the chronology. His 1760 example follows the content of my 1670 edition. His 1670 issue is clearly the Blocquel edition issued between 1818-1840. Even more importantly he barely acknowledges the manuscript examples in the Bibliotheque National. I could go on at length, but my critique is many pages longer than his introduction. The print versions of the Honorian grimoire were created as commercial items distributed by a network of colportuers to a semi literate customer base. The same cannot be said for the manuscripts versions which have been very under studied in scholarly circles. There are at least three at the Bibliotheque National all penned sometime in the eighteenth century, may be if we ask nicely enough Gallica would post them on line for study. There are also possibly examples dating back to 1629, but so far all I have are tentative titles.

HASH(0x96249de0) out of 5 stars *More* than complete! 29 Aug. 2013
By Walter Five - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
In this edition, Mr.Rankine contrasts and compares 4 French Editions of this Grimoire as well as a 19th Century German edition. One of the French Editions has never before been translated into English. This is a marvelous "ultimate edition" of one of the most influential Grimoires of all time. Highly Reccomended!

HASH(0x96249ce4) out of 5 stars The Definitive Work On The Grimoire Of Honorius 14 Dec. 2013
By M. Rey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Already a fan of David Rankine's work, himself having proven to be an adept scholar and researcher in the grimoire tradition and produced some of the greatest works of the modern era along with Stephen Skinner in their Sourceworks series, I was elated to hear of his forthcoming edition of Honorius. Needless to say, he and Paul Harry Barron did not disappoint. With the exceptional scholarship and meticulousness demonstrated in his previous works, Rankine and Barron have brought Honorius to life in a manner worthy of the genre's other greats - JHP and Skinner.

HASH(0x961cfbe8) out of 5 stars Another great contribution 24 Jan. 2014
By Scarlet River - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The strength of this book is that it brings together the varied texts of the Grimoire of Honorius, some of it into English for the first time. The introduction is a bonus, as it puts the book into the context of the grimoire tradition. It is an essential contribution to the available source texts on this obscured tradition which the author has helped to bring to light over the last 15 years through his work with Barron, Skinner and d'Este.
