It contains a strange undated
handwritten paper (see below, used in exorcism ?).
Desciption : Extremely
scarce and curious occult treatise on the manifestations
of devils in our world. That work is unknown to most
bibliographies and was last published during the XVIIth
Century, no modern editions can be found. It can't be
compared to any book ever published on the subject.
Officially the author dedicate his book to the education
of young people but it reveals a very esoteric and profound
knowledge of demonology and was often used by exorcists
and the inquisition.
Contains an "Appendix seu
aeterna inferorum supplicia".
