A True and Faithful Relation, a collection of the diaries and writings of Dr. John Dee was published by Meric Casaubon in 1659, fifty years after Dee's death.

In so doing, Casaubon was hoping to discredit Dee, who was then a revered mathematician and philosopher, as revenge against the Puritan government, by attacking one of the fundamental tenants of the faith: that individuals could receive spiritual guidance directly from divine sources.

He was quite successful in destroying Dee's reputation, by painting him as a worker of Black Magic. Despite this, we owe Casaubon a great debt for providing us with many copies of Dee's work, which would otherwise have been unavailable to us today.

The 500 page True and Faithful Relation is one of the most remarkable magical records of all time. This branch of magic is sometimes called Enochian Magic, as The Book of Enoch deals quite directly with summoning angels, and was one of Dee's primary sources. The book contains not only records of Dee's conversations with various angels, but also all the diagrams and methodologies necessary to summon angles, and a good description of the angelic language also called Enochian.

Meric Casaubon's A True and Faithful Relation is mainly a transcription of the Dee and Kelley materials in British Museum MSS Cotton Appendix XLVI, parts I and II. Although some of the sectional titles are not exact to the manuscript, and there are other transcription errors, this 17th century book was prepared at a time when the manuscripts were in better condition than they are today. Portions of Casaubon's text and illustrations are taken from other Dee and Kelley MSS. Except for the Latin sectional heads and portions in Enochian the text is in English.
