About this work

Description

ART (L') magique: ou la Science Angélique d'Agripa [sic], Salomon, Arbatel, Pierre de Abano et de plusieurs autres auteurs, avec plusieurs secrets servant à la même science, le tout sans énigme, expliqué sincèrement et recueillit par xxx. There is a separate title in red for 'Les Ellements [sic] magiques de Pierre de Abano'. The title given above is misleading. The works actually contained in this volume are: (1) Pseudo-Solomon. Grimoire. Ou livre 1 des Clavicules de Salomon ou Rabin hébreu contenant les secrets surnaturels qu'y s'opèrent par la puissance des démons (11.2-20). (2) Petrus de Abano. Les Ellements magiques (11.21-59). (3) Onimancie (L') [sic], ou traité de l'invocation de l'ange Uriel (11.60-69). The date on the t.p. is given as 'MCCCIX'; which is possibly an error for 1709, though this date is repeated on the t.p. of the Abano tract.
