The origins of this work are lost in time. Some say that it was written by the wizard Eibon, of ancient Hyperborea, before the fall of Atlantis. The earliest known version is the 9th century Latin ''Liber Ivonis'', attributed to Caius Phillipis Faber. There was a translation into medieval French by Gaspard du Nord of Vyones some time in the 13th century, called the ''Livre d'Ivon'', of which thirteen copies are said to exist. In the 15th century, it was translated into English, which was when it got the title ''Book of Eibon''.
- A copy of "Liber Ivonis" is kept at Zimmerman Library
