This and the tome Pnakotica are the same. Originals was Greek papyri from time of Christ, has oracular and mythical meanings from a set of indecipherable runes and hieroglyphics from Ultima Thule. Interpretations of it became parts of western magical tradition. Sinde 1485 many have added further texts, steles, and inscriptions to the Pnakotic corpus. There is no complete set of the manuscripts. So there’s lots of material that goes by this name.
Some can be found in most top university collections.
In Late Middle English, a bit of a challenge so Linguistics roll. Each success takes away part of negative to then read the book fully.
