The Aurum Solis stuff is actually one of the best things Llewellyn has ever
published. There was a five or six-volume set under the title _The Magical
Philosophy_, by Melitta Denning and Osborne Phillips. (I've since seen
editions with the volumes combined in various ways. Check your local
bookstore.) These books are a compilation of the initiatory system and
related materials of a working occult order. The material is vaguely Golden
Dawn-ish, but much better organized, and with a somewhat different
viewpoint. I disagree with some of their theoretical constructs (which get
somewhat Jungian at times), but their practical material is first-rate.

Everybody who uses the Enochian magick ends up putting their own unique spin
on it in some way. The Aurum Solis added their own special touch in their
method of using _Liber Scientiae_. They combined the Second Call with the
Call of the Aethyrs to force the manifestation of the Parts towards the
material pole of existence, and then concentrated on the numbered
"ministers" in each Part. For each set of ministers, they obtained a name,
an image of their appearance, and the aspects of existence over which they
could exercise control. These ministers, once invoked to evoked to visible
appearance, could be put to various purposes.
