While we are pleased to offer you this text, we must do so with a warning... Entitled "Compendium Rarissimum", this is a complete reproduction of a 18th century text not discussing the occult, but of the occult itself. This is a "demonology" text, or a book specifically on the practice of summoning demons and of witchcraft. While this book may seem as it is meant to be comedic, this is in fact a text from the period which was intended for this purpose, either by a mad individual, or a firm believer. This book is rather similar to that of the fictional work "Ninth Gate", with a series of demonic images linking the reader to an unknown text with an unknown origin and purpose. This text is rather detailed and contains many, quite a large number of colour images from the text, on period paper.
We have done our best to restore the images within this work to as close to their original appearance, as possible. This text is extremely graphic and not intend for children, its imagery is exceptionally disturbing, as is its written content, with numerous hidden messages that we have uncovered. Though we recommend this work, we also must warn you, who knows what may come with it upon opening and reading its text out loud.
This item is made to order and will be ready in less than one to two weeks (usually sooner) from the order date.
