Says the series editor: "The "Mysteriorum Libri Quinti" manuscript has been much quoted from during the last few years, however esotericists and scholars have till now not had available the complete text in print. Joseph Peterson has diligently prepared this edition transcribing the difficult handwritten text, and provides an introduction, summarised contents of the Five Books, an Index Verborum to the Angelic words in the text, and an extremely useful Index to the text itself."
