History of the Necronomicon, by H. History of the Necronomiconby H. Composed by Abdul Alhazred, a mad poet of Sanaa, in Yemen, who is said to have flourished during the period of the Ommiade caliphs, circa A. Of this desert many strange and unbelievable marvels are told by those who pretend to have penetrated it.
In his last years Alhazred dwelt in Damascus, where the Necronomicon Ai Azif was written, and of his final death or disappearance A. He is said by Ebn Khallikan 12th cent. Of his madness many things are told. He claimed to have seen the fabulous Irem, or Necronoicon of Pillars, and to have found necronojicon the ruins of a certain nameless desert town the shocking annals and secrets of a race older than mankind.
He was only an indifferent Moslem, worshipping unknown entities whom he called Yog-Sothoth al-azid Cthulhu. For a century it impelled certain experimenters to terrible attempts, when it was suppressed and burnt by the patriarch Michael. The work both Latin and Greek was banned by Pope Gregory IX inshortly after its Latin translation, which called sl to it. An English translation made by Dr. Dee was never printed, and exists only in fragments recovered ek the original manuscript.
Of the Latin texts now existing one 15th cent. A seventeenth-century edition is in the Widener Library at Harvard, and in the library of Miskatonic University at Arkham.

Also in the library of the University of Buenos Ayres. Numerous other copies probably exist in secret, and a fifteenth-century one is persistently rumoured to form part of the collection of a celebrated American millionaire. A still vaguer nfcronomicon credits the preservation of a sixteenth-century Greek text in the Salem family of Pickman; but if necronpmicon was so preserved, it vanished with the nerconomicon R. Pickman, who disappeared early in The book is rigidly suppressed by the authorities of most countries, and by all branches of organised ecclesiasticism.
Reading leads to terrible consequences. It was from rumours of this book of which relatively few of the general public know that R. Chambers is said to have derived the idea of his early novel The King in Yellow. Al Azif written circa A. Arabic text now lost. Price reports that in a letter of May 13,HPL specified that the Italian printing was inand the Spanish one in Chaosium,p.
An Arab asserted that Alhazred left many legacies among his own people, perhaps implying that copies of the Arabic original survive there [ RB Fane ]. In the forger Alastair White’s spurious catalog of esoteric books for sale, he asserted that only two copies of the Arabic version are known to have existed [ AWD Six ]. Latin Versions A copy of the 15th century edition resides at the British Museum, while copies of the 17th century edition reside at the Bibliotheque Nationale at Paris, the Miskatonic University library, the Widener Library at Harvard, and the library of the University of Buenos Ayres.
Williams bought a Latin copy at an absurdly low price at a Jew’s shop in the squalid precincts of Clare Market, London; the copy was leather-bound with a brass clasp [ HPL Descendant ].
The Festival narrator saw a Latin copy in the ancestral home of his people, during a visit to Kingsport and apparently also back in time [ HPL Festival ]. Robert Blake found a Latin copy in the former Starry Wisdom church on Federal Hill in Necronomicin [ HPL Haunter ], but did not carry it away with him at that time  so it was probably destroyed later during the fire .
John Carnby suspected omissions and erroneous renderings in the Latin version of Olaus Wormius, and identified two specific omissions [ CAS Return 36, ]. As HPL’s History doesn’t mention such a translation, this may be a mistaken reference to the Spanish printing of Wormius’ Latin version.
Wilbur Whateley had a al-azof but imperfect copy of Dr. Williams consulted an archaic English copy at Miskatonic University [ AWD Witches ]; this is surprising, as other sources credit Miskatonic with having only a Latin copy.

Estimates of Availability A bookseller in Chandos Street, London, told Williams that only five copies have survived the shocked edicts of priests and lawgivers, and rl kept under lock and key by their custodians [ HPL Descendant ].
Captain Cartaret thought there were only six complete versions, of which the nearest to Egypt was in the British Museum [ RB Fane ].
Some say there is a hidden copy in Cairo and another in the archives of the Vatican, and there may be laboriously copied portions in various private collections [ AWD Lurker ]. During an elder ritual beneath Kingsport, the cultists groveled obeisance whenever their leader held it above his head, perhaps suggesting that the book itself had become an object of worship [ HPL Festival ].
Quotations The Immortal Couplet That is not dead which can eternal lie, And with strange aeons even death may die. Nor is it to be thought that man is either the oldest or the last of earth’s masters, or that the common bulk of life and substance walks alone. Not in the spaces we know, but between them, They walk serene and primal, undimensioned and to us unseen.
Yog-Sothoth knows the gate. Yog-Sothoth is the gate.
Yog-Sothoth is the key and guardian of the gate. Past, present, future, all are one in Yog-Sothoth. He knows where the Old Ones broke through of old, and where They shall break through again. He knows where They have trod earth’s fields, and where They still tread them, necronomifon why no one can behold Them as They tread. By Their smell can men sometimes know Them near, but of Their semblance can no man know, saving only in the features of those They have begotten on mankind; and of those are there many sorts, differing in likeness from man’s truest eidolon necroomicon that shape without sight or substance which is Them.
They walk unseen and foul in lonely places where the Words rl been spoken and the Rites howled through at their Seasons. The wind gibbers with Their voices, and the earth mutters with Their consciousness. They bend the forest and crush the city, yet may not forest or city behold the hand that smites. Kadath in the cold waste hath known Them, and what man knows Kadath? Necrpnomicon ice desert of the South and the sunken isles of Ocean hold stones whereon Their seal is engraven, but who hath seen the deep frozen city or the sealed tower long garlanded with al-zaif and barnacles?
Great Cthulhu is Their cousin, yet can he spy Them only dimly. As a foulness shall ye know Them. Their hand is at your throats, yet ye see Them not; and Their habitation is even one with your guarded threshold. Yog-Sothoth is the key to the gate, whereby the spheres meet. Man rules now where They ruled once; They shall soon rule where man rules now. After summer is winter, necrojomicon after winter summer.
They wait patient and potent, for here shall They reign again.
Henry Armitage looked over his shoulder. An alternate version of this passage follows. Never is it to be thought that man is either oldest or last of the Masters of Earth; nay, nor that the eel part of life and substance walks alone. Not in the spaces known to us, but between them, They walk calm and primal, of no dimensions, and to us unseen. Yog-Sothoth knows the necronmicon, for Yog-Sothoth is the gate. Yog-Sothoth is the key and the guardian of the gate. He knows where the Old Ones broke through of old, and where They shall break through in time to come until the Cycle is complete.
He knows why no one can behold Them as They walk. Sometimes men can know Them near by Their smell, which is strange to the nostrills, and like unto a creature of great age; but of Their semblance no man can know, save seldom in features of those They have begotten on mankind, which are awful to behold, and thrice awful are Those who sired them; yet of those Offspring there are divers kinds, in likeness greatly differing from man’s truest image and fairest eidolon to that shape without sight or substance which is Them.
They walk unseen, They walk foul in lonely places where the Words have been spoken and the Rites howled through at Their Sea sons, which are in the blood and differ from the seasons of man.
The winds gibber with Their voices; the Earth mutters with Their conscious ness. They bend the forest. Kadath in the cold waste knows them, and what man knows Kadath?
History of the Necronomicon
The ice desert of the South and the sunken isles of Ocean hold stones whereon Their seal is engraven, but who has seen the deep frozen city or the sealed tower long garlanded with seaweed and barnacles? As a foulness shall They be known to the race of man. Their hands are at the throats of men forever, from beginning of known time to end of time known, yet none sees Them; and Their habitation is even one with your guarded threshold. Yog-Sothoth is the key to the gate whereby the spheres meet.
Man rules now where once They ruled; soon They shall rule again where man rules now. They wait patient and potent, for here shall They reign again, and at Their coming again none shall dispute Them and all shall be subject to Them. Those who know of the gates shall be impelled to open the way for Them and shall serve Them as They desire, but those who open the way unwitting shall know but a brief while thereafter.
Note that necrono,icon version of the text has some additional text at the end, beginning at: The nethermost caverns are not for the fathoming of eyes that see; for their marvels are strange and terrific. Cursed the ground where dead thoughts live new and oddly bodied, and evil the mind that is held by no head. Wisely did Ibn Schacabao say, that happy is the tomb where no wizard hath lain, and a-lazif the town at night whose wizards are all ashes.
For it is of old rumour that the soul of the devil-bought hastes not from his charnel clay, but fats and instructs the e worm that gnaws; till out of corruption horrid life springs, and the dull scavengers of earth wax crafty to vex it and swell monstrous to plague it.
Great holes secretly are digged where earth’s pores ought to suffice, and things have learnt to walk that ought to crawl. And while there are those, who have dared to seek glimpses beyond the Veil, and to accept HIM as a Guide, they would have been more prudent had they avoided commerce nectonomicon HIM; for it is written in the Book of Thoth how terrific is the price of a single glimpse.
Nor may those who pass ever return, for in the Vastnesses transcending our world are Shapes of darkness that seize and bind. The Affair that shambleth about in the night, the Evil that defieth the Elder Sign, the Herd that stand watch at the secret portal each tomb is known to have, and that thrive on that which groweth out of the tenants within— all these Blacknesses are lesser than HE Who guardeth the Gateway; HE Who will guide the rash one beyond all the worlds into the Abyss of unnamable Devourers.
Many and multiform are the dim horrors of Earth, infesting her ways from the prime. They sleep beneath the unturned stone; they rise with the tree from its roots; they move beneath the sea and in subterranean places; they dwell in the inmost adyta; they emerge betimes from necronomcon shutten sepulcher of haughty bronze and the low grave that is sealed with clay.
There be some that are long known to man, and others as yet unknown that abide the terrible latter days of their revealing. Those which are the most dreadful and the loathliest of all are haply still to be declared.
But among those that have a-lazif themselves afore time and have made manifest their veritable presence, there is one which may not openly be named for its exceeding foulness.
It is that spawn which the hidden dweller in necronojicon vaults has begotten upon mortality. It is verily known by few, but is nevertheless an attestable fact, that the will of a dead sorcerer hath power upon his own body and can raise it up from the tomb and perform therewith whatever action was unfulfilled in life.
