A compilation from a number of sources by an anonymous author who, according to editors Best and Brightman, probably was one of Albertus Magnus' followers. A collector's item, it has a more colloquial voice than the writing of the true Albertus Magnus and provides an accurate portrayal of the magical culture that predominated in the 16th century. Part of the Weiser Classic Series. Index, Bibliography, 34 woodcut illustrations.

Small octavo. xlviii + 128pp. Black cloth with gilt title, etc. to spine, gilt illustration on front cover. Illustrated.
