Doktor Johannes Faust’s Magia Naturalis et Innaturalis is a grimoire, or spell book, published by Johann Scheible in 1849. (Scheible’s book may be based on another by the same name, published in 1612.) It contains instructions for summoning all sorts of demons, though you’ll need to learn German to get anywhere with it. Daniel Harms, who knows and writes about these things, explains at his blog:

The central piece of the ritual is the summoning of the spirits to sign the magician’s book, the Liber Spirituum, and thereby become subject to his will. The magician must draw a three-tiered circle on linen which is then taken to a crossroads and jumped into, hokey-pokey style. Then potent conjurations, including not just Christian beings, but also the Greek judges of the Underworld and the Erinyes, must be invoked. The magician might merely have them sign his book, or, if he grows ambitious, he might sign a pact with one of them.

Cool! But just what demons can be summoned? Oh, quite a wide variety. Here they are:
