Compendium Rarissimum

Compendium Rarissimum totius Artis Magicae sistematisatae per Celeberrimos Artis Magistros. Anno 1057. Noli me tengere – is the complete title of this obscure work, it translates to something like: “A rare summary of the entire Magical Art by the most famous Masters of this Art”. Despite the year mentioned in the title, scholars suggest that the book was written much later, in 1775. Compendium Rarissimum is about demonology and it is handwritten in both German and Latin. Most readers will enjoy the 31 colorful illustrations and three pages of magical and cabbalistic signs and sigils, etc, others might have a weakness for a book with a “Do not touch!” marked on its cover – reminds me of the Necronomicon.
