The Beauchamp Grimoire is an ancient tome containing a plethora of spells, incantations and potions used by the Beauchamp family. The Grimoire is hidden inside a magic Trunk which is hidden behind a secret compartment inside the Breakfront.
The Grimoire is a large tome about the size of a dictionary or encyclopedia volume. The book is bound in dark leather, whilst the front cover features a Gold Pentacle surrounded by an antique border and a brass lock. A Similar design is repeated on the back of the book, whilst the Spine features additional ornamental designs and the title "Grimoire". Although the book is very old, it remains in good condition, although the pages have yellowed somewhat with age.
The Grimoire is written by hand in ink. The pages in the book are written entirely in Latin and often include elaborate Illustrations and calligraphy, some pages also include additional handwritten notes, added presumably by Joanna Beauchamp and her family over the years.
The Beauchamp Grimoire holds a plethora of spells, incantations and potions for many different purposes. The book also contains information on animals, symbols, herbs and flowers. The Grimoire is almost entirely written in Latin (this is the language spoken when reciting spells), despite this, there are a few entries written in English.
