Discovered in the stacks of the Bodleian Library at Oxford, this authentic work of 17th-century English magic has been meticulously transcribed and translated by Daniel Harms and illustrated by James R. Clark, the team that created the bestselling Book of Oberon (9780738743349). With a comprehensive introduction, annotations, and appendices to help contextualize the material, in addition to more than 100 figures and illustrations, this beautifully reconstructed historical work is filled with never-before published rituals for calling forth demons, fairies, spirits of the hours of the day, elementals, and other spiritual beings. This elegantly bound book provides new insights into a fascinating tradition, where a sorcerer or cunning-man was paid to perform magic for uncovering theft, healing, combating witchcraft, hunting for treasure, or for having a spirit fulfill one's commands. This premium hardcover edition is a must-have for collectors and working ritualists.
