Very rare edition of the two parts of Agrippa's collected works. Almost all editions of Agrippa's works are undated , and all but the original were actually based on the first edition, in reality not printed by the Beringos brothers, but by Zetzner in Strassburg in the late XVIth century (See A.Prost extensive work on the subject) .

Published during the XVI century, the works of Agrippa are foundational to both western secular and occult thought. In his own time, although admired and feared by many as a powerful magician, he was hunted as a heretic and necromancer, his books were burned and he was condemned by the Inquisition.
