Lewis de Claremont, also spelled Louis de Clermont, was the pseudonym of an American author on occultism who flourished during the 1930s.

Books attributed to de Claremont include 7 Keys to Power, 7 Steps to Success, The Ancient's Book of Magic, The Ancient Book of Formulas, and Legends of Incense, Herb, and Oil Magic. Although authorship of his writings was claimed by the publisher Joseph Kay (Joseph Spitalnick) for purposes of copyright renewal, this claim has been easily disproved. It is possible that this author is the same person who also used the pseudonym Henri Gamache. If so, his name may have been Mr. Young. More information can be found on the page about Henri Gamache.

Most of de Claremont's titles have been reprinted by other publishers and remain in print.
