The Book of Agony is covered in a leather cover with pins of brass and copper driven through its surface, lying flush against it. It is a grimoire containing four rotes and a series of notes that clearly belonged to some torturerer from the late 19th Century. From the writing, it's clear the author was a doctor or other medical professional. The contents focus on methods of causing pain, but also some other techniques that came from the research.
