PREFATORY NOTE. THIS translation of the First Book of the “Lemegeton” (now for the first time made accessible to English adepts and students of the Mysteries) was done, after careful collation and edition, from numerous MSS. in Hebrew, Latin, French and English, by G. H. Fra. D.D.C.F., by the order of the Secret Chief of the Rosicrucian Order.1 The G. H. Fra., having succumbed unhappily to the assaults of the Four Great Princes (acting notably under Martial influences), it seemed expedient that the work should be brought to its conclusion by another hand. The investigations of a competent Skryer into the house of our unhappy Fra., confirmed this divination; neither our Fra. nor his Hermetic Mul. were there seen; but only the terrible shapes of the evil Adepts S.V.A.2 and H., whose original bodies having been sequestered by Justice, were no 1 Mr A. E. Waite writes (“Real History of the Rosicrucians,” p. 426): “I beg leave to warn my readers that all persons who proclaim themselves to be Rosicrucians are simply members of pseudo-fraternities, and there is that difference between their assertion and the fact of the case in which the essence of a lie consists!” It is within the Editor’s personal knowledge that Mr. Waite was (and still is probably) a member of a society claiming to be the R.C. fraternity.

(For by a childish and easy magical trick did S.V.A. persuade D.D.C.F. of that lie.) longer of use to them. On this we stayed no longer Our Hand; but withdrawing Ourselves, and consulting the Rota, and the Books M. and Q. did decide to ask Mr. Aleister Crowley,1 a poet, and skilled student of Magical Lore, and an expert Kabbalist, to complete openly that which had been begun in secret.2 This is that which is written: “His Bishoprick let another take.” And again: “Oculi Tetragrammaton.” This is also that which is said: “Nomen Secundum }fc urq refertur ad Gebhurah; qui est Rex secundus, quo moriente delabebantur Posteriora Matris, unde Bittul atque Corruptio Achurajum Patris et Matris hoc indigitatur.” And so saying we wish you well. ...
