Grimorium Verum

Grimorium Verum

The 'Grimorium Verum' (Latin for True Grimoire or The Grimoire of Truth) is a book on magic, or Grimoire allegedly written by "Alibeck the Egyptian" in Memphis in 1517. Scholars agree that such claim is untrue and that book really stems from 18th century, with the first editions appearing in French and Italian. Arthur Waite in his work The Book of Ceremonial Magic says:

"The date specified in the title of the Grimorium Verum is undeniably fraudulent; the work belongs to the middle of the eighteenth century, and Memphis is Rome."

Large portions of this short book were translated by Arthur Waite and published in The Book of Ceremonial Magic in 1911. Idries Shah also published some of it in "The Secret Lore of Magic: Book of the Sorcerers" in 1957. Like many Grimoires, it claims origin from King Solomon.
