This is one of the early beautifully produced occult grimoires, which set the standard for the deluxe grimoires we see being produced today. The Necronomicon first appeared in H. P. Lovecraft's 1924 story "The Hound" and has been referenced in works ranging from the supernatural fiction of August Derleth to Sam Raimi's Evil Dead film series. Although this edition capitalises on Lovecraft's creation, it has little connection to the Lovecraftian mythos of the Necronomicon and instead focuses on its purported links to Sumerian mythology.
