Hi, is any of you ever been in touch with books of Lewis De Claremont?
I have one called Ancient book of Magic" in which he describe how to invoke spirits and angels in physical realm, the thing is i CANNOT find a copy of the whole book, and someone rip off most important part of the book bcs the list of :"Incense, oil, and Candle is ripped of and missing..
Online copies of the book are the same, and there is no key list which is needed to perform invocation...
He mentions in the beginning of the book that the :"List" is being provided with adequate color candle's, Incense and oil but i went trough and there is no list like that, at the end of the book its coded and for example it says for Angel Raphael use :"Candle #3 Incense #8 Oil#12 and other numbers are for other Spirits or angels, but there is nowhere explanation what those numbers mean :((((((
I already went through his other books and did not find anything :/

Well, the book isn't very ancient at all. It was published in the 1940's. It has long since moved into the public domaine. However there were some copyright issues with the original book which may well explain why some parts of the book can no longer be found since a copyright conflict would result in legal issues should those portions of the book be published anywhere. Much of the remaining material does not seem to be based on historical grimoires at all given the nature of the ingredients called for. And I am always leery of any book that claims to be "T he worlds only complete catalogue of occult recipes for use during ceremonial practice and in everyday life."
Lucky Mojo has a pretty good rendition of the book on-line, but she mentions on her site that the original book did not contain the forumulae for many of the things Claremont mentions.http://www.luckymojo.com/spells/ancientbookformulas.html
The numbered incenses and oils in his books were in reference to products made by a specific company that, as you can imagine, has been out of business fora long time. Because of this, its impossible to know what was in those products the company made.
