To become invisible
One Wednesday, before sunrise, take a skull in good condition and seven black beans. Put one bean in the mouth, two in the eyes, two in the nostrils and two in the ears. Then draw a triangle on the skull with a consecrated coal from a censer. Bury it, facing the sun, and water it for nine days with eau-de vie. On the tenth day, there will be born a Spirit that will water itself for seven days. After that time, dig up the head, and, one after the other put the seven beans in your mouth whilst staring at yourself in a mirror. If your image in the mirror disappears, it is a sign that you are invisible.

Council of a knight
You will stop a tavern brawl by throwing into the middle of the combatants an apple upon which you will have written “HAON”

Secret of a good fortune teller
You will favour the success of your spells by wearing around your right knee, during the ceremony, a bag containing dried thevut leaves

Axiom of the immortal
The nastiest wheel of the cart always shouts

We only know of Saint Guillame by the street situated in Paris in the 6th arrondissement. Nevertheless its proximity to the Rue des Saints-Peres and that of the pPre-aux-Clerics sufficiently proves his holiness

Gobelin is a domestic wisp, benevolent, greedy and helpful.

Copernicus, celebrated astronomer, invented a science that was condemned by Rome.
