Traditional evocations of spirits into crystals

I am working on a rather large text (small book on the Art of Drawing Spirits into Crystals) here is the very Rough draft of what my outline will look like:

Herein are my personal accounts, discoveries, and workings with the system of magic according
to:
TRADTIONAL EVOCATION OF SPIRITS INTO CRYSTALS
According to Johannes Trithemius

From Francis Barrett The Magus, Book II, London, 1801, pp. 135 ff. This text appeared as Part IV of Book 2, parts I-III being (I) a treatise on magnetism, (II) The Cabala, or Ceremonial Magic, plagiarized from pseudo-Agrippa’s Fourth Book, (III) The Key to Ceremonial Magic, plagiarized from Peter de Abano’s Heptameron.

The
Magic and Philosophy of
TRITHEMIUS OF SPANHEIM;
containing his book of
SECRET THINGS,
and
DOCTRINE OF SPIRITS
with many curious and rare secrets (hitherto not generally known;)THE ART OF DRAWING SPIRITS INTO CRYSTALS, &c.
With many other Experiments in the Occult Sciences, never yet published in the English Language. Translated from a valuable Latin manuscript,

2.   The experiments of traditional work. The methods behind the madness

3.   The equipment:

a. The crystal, ebony pedestal, and gold disk.
