Reversion on 21 Oct 2006
This article was mangled on Aug 25 by edits from IP 18.104.22.168. The only edits from this IP address have been to remove sections from the article. Nothing has been added to this (or any other) article by edits from that IP.
Versions of this article prior Aug 25 contain good information on the contents of the Key. I've reverted this article to re-include all the details; but copy over the addition made on Aug 29 by Fuzzypeg and the link to the Portugese version added on 20 October.

Recent reverted edits
I've reverted some large additions made to the article. Two sections had been added. The first, regarding Pseudo-Solomon, claimed that Solomon was probably a name adopted by a later magician in imitation of the biblical Solomon. No references were given for this theory, and it sounds unlikely to me. A simpler explanation would have been that whoever compiled these texts attributed them to Solomon to give the documents greater authority. Either way, such theories need to be attributed to a reputable author to appear in the article, otherwise they are considered original research.
The second paragraph was a very lengthy quote regarding the document's mythical history, taken from the introduction of the Key, which I have replaced with a much briefer summary of the story. Rather than include such lengthy quotes we should provide references to sources which our readers can follow if they're interested. Fuzzypeg★ 03:32, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

Please no Spamming
I actually own this book, so I could pick out a few pages to reference through Google books if that would help in the "contents" section where more sources seem to be needed, I'm just not certain what is expected. Also, would a redirect from "King Solomon's Clavicle" to this page be out of order? Hit up my talk page if this sounds acceptable. Spetheric (talk) 07:36, 3 November 2009 (UTC)
