From the publisher: "Translation of a scarce and important handwritten grimoire possibly copied from an earlier 18th century source, the author's own notes to the contents as well as its style suggests it is a personal copy not for circulation or even private viewing partaking of both the Solomonic grimoire tradition as well as the English ‘Cunning Man’ type of manuscript. The ‘Edward Hunter’ of the title page may have been a Bristol based merchant and one who later had links to the Mormon groups in the United States, thus connecting two worlds" Appears "as new" thus portfolio and interior books are in about Fine condition.
