Written by one of the most important 16th century philosophers of the Occult, Cornelius Agrippa, "The Fourth Book of Occult Philosophy" is one of the most influential grimoires. The content of the book focused on spirit conjuration, which sullied Agrippa’s name at a time when the witch trials were becoming increasingly popular in Europe (Davies 47-50, 79-80).

The nature of grimoires changed with the rise of print. One of the most influential Renaissance grimoires, "Of The Supreme Mysteries of Nature" by early 16th century occultist Philippus von Hohenheim, contained instruction on how to harness the power of words through engraving and writing. Von Hohenheim was known for his ideas about medicine, astrology, alchemy, and celestial magic (Davies 48). Image Source: Britannica Online.

Written by British occultist Francis Barrett and published in 1801, "The Magus" borrowed from 17th century occult and scientific texts. It was influential in the late 19th century during the occult revival. In the 20th century "The Magus" was plagiarized by "The Great Book of Magical Art, Hindu Magic and East Indian Occultism" by L. W. de Laurence, which later became very popular in the US and the Caribbean (Davies 135). Image Source: Grimoires, A History of Magic Books by Owen Davies.
