Candido de Figueiredo et.al. :
"Pequeno Dicionario da Lingua Portuguesa" 
Bertrand Editora, Lisboa, Portugal, 1987 - pp.1464
I may have said it before. Where would we be without a dictionary ? I don't doubt that the larger version of the book will be much better, but for the moment I am perfectly happy to be using the "pequeno" edition.
N. A. Molina :
"O Livro Negro de São Cipriano" [no date]
Editora Espiritualista, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, no date - pp.320
Saint Cyprian, or so Molina informs us, was born on an unspecified date in the town of Antioch, somewhere in Asia Minor. The "Black Book of Saint Cyprian" is a Grimoire with lots of remarkable ceremonies and magical spells. Predictably, the structure and contents are not completely unlike other grimoires, such as the "Gremoire du Pape Honorius", or the Abbé Julio's "Le Livre Secret". There are exorcisms to cast out devils. But Saint Cyprian (or is it Molina ?) also seems to have taken an interest in things like astrology, palm-reading and cartomancy, to name but a few. The book presents an amusing mix of Christian prayers, black magic, love-spells and other things. Its endearing naivety makes a refreshing change from some of the heavy and often equally ridiculous stuff that has been written by more serious occultists.
