Codex Sinaiticus - Home Grimoires Warning : the following documents deal with magic and should not be used without proper care and deep knowledge of this art. The word grimoire is from the Old French grammaire, or grammar. Latin "grammars" (books on Latin syntax and diction) were considered in the Middle Ages as books of basic instruction. Today, a grimoire is considered as a book of magical knowledge, with instructions for its use to achieve certain ends. They contain various magical formulas or symbols such as astrological correspondences, incantations and ritual instructions for working with angels and conjuring spirits and demons as well as directions on casting charms and spells, on mixing medicines, and making talismans. To understand the real content, one must delve into the life and times of the magicians who wrote them and decipher the symbols that were used to hide the real secrets. More about the Necronomicon

GoodReads Incunabula Database -- The Bancroft Library About the Rare Book Collections The University Library's Rare Book Collection was founded in 1954 and transferred to The Bancroft Library in 1970. It is responsible for collecting, preserving, and making accessible old, rare, fragile, and sensitive materials over the entire range of the Library of Congress classification scheme. As it is impossible to collect actively in all fields, certain collections are more significant than others. As a rule, the Rare Book Collections avoid the subject areas of law, medicine, music, and East Asiatic languages, since other campus libraries specialize in these areas. Genealogy and military science are not collected. Overview of collections Tebtunis PapyriContains nearly 35,000 papyrus fragments, ca. 300 B.C.-300 A.D. Medieval manuscriptsAbout 300 codices and hundreds of paleographical specimens dating from ca. 1000 A.D. to 1600. Classical AuthorsThere are very strong collections of classical texts printed in the 15th-18th centuries. Consultation
