I'm writing up a CoC adventure and needed a text behind the cult. After following some very interesting rabbit holes on the Internet, I came up with this.

History: The manuscript was obtained by Antonio del Ulloa (later governor of Spanish Louisiana) during his travels to South America, where he first described the metal platinum. After the capture of his ship by the English, he was taken captive to England where he became a Fellow of the Royal Society and a close friend of Sir Joseph Danvers, 1st Baronet of Swithland.
At Swithland’s request at least one copy of the original Spanish manuscript was made, which has been retained by the Royal Society. Rumors of an English translation in the possession of the Danvers family persist, but it has never surfaced. There is some speculation that it may have been lost when a great grandson of the Baronet migrated to America in the 1830s.
The original manuscript known to have been kept on the Blasphemous Shelves of the library of Monastario del Escorial in Spain prior to the Spanish Civil War.
