This is basically a prop; an artifact; a joke. It is a few pages of faux introduction by L. Sprague De Camp (science-fiction writer, biographer of Lovecraft, and jokester). This is interesting and informational enough. Then it is 197 pages of fake, repetitive text in a Syriac-like text (a made-up script De Camp calls Duriac). Buyers should do their research and realize that this is a well-constructed joke, all perpetrated so that De Camp could get the Necronomicon listed in the Library of Congress card catalog. It is what it is. It is for the Lovecraft bibliophile, or a gamer. Don't expect it to be readable grimoire like Simon's Necronomicon, or an informative book like Hay's Necronomicon.… (mais)

Yet another hoax Necronomicon. This one pretends to be translated by a Mexican professor - straight from ancient Sumeric tablets - into Italian. Why he wouldn't use Spanish remains a mistery, and how it rhymes with Abdul al Alhazred (sic) allegedly being the author isn't quite clear. Illustrations are roughly copies from late medieval / renaissance grimoires though. Hilarious.

Four plush pages of mock-horror aimed squarely at the twisted parents of innocents. It purports to be a mildly bowdlerised version of the original.

Not so much a book as a prank by author L. Sprague De Camp, perpertrated so that the Necronomicon would appear in the Catalog of the Library of Congress. Not sure if it was ever intended for a wide release.

A few pages of back story and then the rest is just pages and pages of faux-Arabic gibberish repeated over and over. An interesting piece of Lovecraftiana, nothing more.
