The 6th and 7th Books of Moses.

Abstract

A manual of magical incantations, which first appeared in Germany nearly 200 years ago, has played an essential role in a tradition of witchcraft belief among Franconian peasants. The use of the grimoire is still wide-spread in Germany today, though its publication was legally disputed in the 1950s. It has even reached the United States, where it is increasingly used in voodoo-like practices.
