The Book of the Office of Spirits (Grimoire)

The Book of the Offices of Spirits is the source manuscript for Johann Weyer's Pseudomonarchia daemonum, although he censored parts of the text that he considered too dangerous to circulate. A more complete version of The Book of the Offices of Spirits is included in The Book of Oberon.

Although the first known appearance of the text is in Weyer's possession in 1563, it is likely much older, but the exact provenance is unknown.
