"This is the book of Adam HaRishon given to him by Raziel HaMalach". Kabbalah and Segulot. Amsterdam: Moses Mendes Coitinho, [1701]. First edition. Many Kabbalistic illustrations.
This is the first edition, edited and printed from manuscripts. This book is the source of many renowned Segulot, for remembering Torah study, a protective amulet for a woman giving birth, etc. Just having this book in the house is a reputed Segula for protection from harm and fire as stated in the title page: "An excellent Segula to bear wise and sage sons, for success, blessing and to extinguish fire, so that it shouldn't affect his home, and no evil being should reside in his home, since the holy, awesome book is concealed with his money in his treasury and in times of trouble it will afford him speedy salvation.
