This thread is about Faust, it is a story. It's fiction! And if there really is a Devil, do think he's bothered about you? The idea is that if you're a bad guy he will get you anyway. If you're a good guy, he wont!
Fautus is a play and is entirely fiction, not a grimoire. It is a very good play for its time and is very ahead of it's time in the philosophical notions of Hell. Mephistopholes is a very interesting character.
Armadel, The Key of Solomon, Clavicus, The dragon Rouge, Picatrix, The Sacred Magick of Abramelin the Mage- These are grimoires and most of them are filled with fiction as well, or as what modern occultists would describe as 'blinds'- that is traps for stupid people!
Magia nauturalis et innaturalis is a real magic grimoire.
Book Magia naturalis et innaturalis [Natural and Supernatural Magic] by Dr. Johannes Faustus (Passau Anno 1505). Taken from the Coburg Ducal Library.
