Elizabeth M. Butler - Ritual Magic - 978-0271018461 - Best academic study of Solomonic magic, though getting a bit dated
Joseph H. Peterson - The Lesser Key of Solomon - 978-1578632206 - Best edition of the text though Skinner and Rankine's Goetia of Dr. Rudd - 978-0738723556 - has an excellent introduction, well-worth close study
