Book of magical charms

Two unidentified hands penned the Book of Magical Charms in England sometime in the seventeenth century. The book is a distinctive collection of selected passages from works on magic and various occult arts that describe everything from speaking with spirits to cheating at dice to curing a toothache. The book also includes a section of Latin prayers, litanies, and other magical charms that seem to stick more closely to mainstream religious practices.
