Claviculae Salomonis Et Theosophia Pneumatica

…Das ist, Die warhafftige Erkänntnüß Gottes, und seiner sichtigen und unsichtigen Geschöpffen, Die Heil. Geist-Kunst genannt

Andreas Luppius, 1686

Clavicula Salomonis et Theosophia pneumatica is based on Arbatel de Magia Veterum although its presentation is different; it not written in aphormisms and contains elements from other works. Andreas Luppius (Wesel, 1686) printed both this text and Arbatel de Magia Veterum in the same year. A.E, Waite states,

The adaptation has been well executed and makes for additional clearness. The transcendental portions are slightly accentuated; it is said in one place that the exaltation of prayer is the end of the whole Mystery, and that such exaltation will never be denied to the true seeker, who is recommended on no account to undervalue his own prayers. This is a better presentation of the theory than the corresponding passage in the Arbatel itself. There is also an addendum on Transcendental Medicine, which, so far as can be known, is original, and it is as curious as anything in the literature with which we are dealing.”

Johann Scheible reprinted all of Luppius grimoires including this book it in his Das Kloster Vol. 3, Stuttgart and Leipzig, 1846:
