Key of Solomon (Grimoire)

The Key of Solomon is a 16th century grimoire which gives a thorough description of the process of summoning a spirit, with chapters on the various supplies the magician will require, and the tasks they must perform. It does not provide a list of demons or spirits, as is common in other Solomonic grimoires, but mentions the four demons kings associated with the cardinal directions, and a smattering of angels.
