Find seven unique German magic texts in the first volume of “A Compendium of Unnatural Black Magic”. These books pertained to a school of magic that originated within the Faustian Tradition during the 17th Century. Like contemporary texts, it contains formulas of conjuration and a procedure based on making deals with spirits and coercing them to achieve one’s desires. Unlike the broader Faustian tradition, it contains unique words of power in its conjurations and a fascinating spirit catalogue. The texts included are:
1) Kornreuther’s Magia Ordinis
2) Herpentil’s-The Book of the Mightiest Spirits
3) Herpentil’s The Embodiment of the Unnatural Magic,
4) Michael Scot’s Compendium of Unnatural Black Magic
5) St. Gertrude of Nivelles’ Libellus St. Gertrudis
6) The Herpentills Salomonis
7) The Legitimate Kornreutter.
Note: The original German and Latin texts are also included so that the reader can compare the originals against their translations.
