Scope and Contents

..., Typhon, Thammuz, Beelzebub, Ashmodaus, Sammael, Daemon, Lucifer the Great, of the dark infernalempire Count of Sheol and Gehenna, Baron of Hades &c., &c., &c. compiled from notes ancient and modern oriental and occidental.

An entirely holograph history of Lucifer, wherein the anonymous author tells us in his Preface, “Lucifer ... is a spiritual being. That is true; but far from being considered here in that light, he is represented plainly terrestrial. He is not the Lucifer as Vondel, Milton and Klopstock described him, but exactly as he is shown in magick lanthorns for the amusement of the spectators. ... My Lucifer is of Ethereal breed and Ether is and remains material. .... mine is of a persian and chaldean race.”
