A fascinating addition to the magical literature of the Elizabethan era, this lavishly illustrated grimoire is a must-have for magic practitioners, collectors, and historians. The Book of Oberon is the meticulous transcription and translation of a sixteenth-century manuscript acquired by the esteemed Folger Shakespeare Library.

Now published in a premium hardcover edition retaining the original’s red lettering of significant words and holy names, The Book of Oberon includes rituals for summoning a long list of spirits and faeries, original drawings, common prescriptions used by cunning folk, instructions for dealing with Goetic demons that were censored in other texts, one of the oldest known copies of the magical manual The Enchiridion, and much more. A 7.1″ x 10″ hardcover book with 600 pages.
