Arif's Primer on Advanced Magics

a Tome, Folio, Incunabulum (if typeset), Breviary (if relating to divine magic)
They were immediately and absolutely recognizable as adventurers... They were hardy and dangerous, lawless, stripped of allegiance or morality, living off their wits, stealing and killing, hiring themselves out to whoever and whatever came. They were inspired by dubious virtues.  China Mieville - Perdido Street Station

Liber Arcanus
Defixiones Daemonorum
Papyri of the Hierophant
The Elder Scrolls Okay, not that one
Tovenaar's Tome
The Folio Interdict
The Book
