The above images originate from a book titled "Compendium rarissimum totius Artis Magicae sistematisatae per celeberrimos Artis hujus Magistros" dated at 1775. The book is a collection of 31 watercolor paintings depicting various demons and dark magic rituals.  I'd found a handful of these artworks many years ago at the Wellcome Images digital library collection but was pleased to find they'd recently shared incredibly high resolution scans of the entire book.

Wow, some find, this.

In case anyone was interested, the book's title translates (badly) into "Unusual compendium of the most populous sistematisatae arts masters of this art."

Anybody have a guess as to what "sistematisatae" is?
