The Picatrix is the most famous grimoire of astrological magic and one of the most important works of medieval and Renaissance magic. The Kindle E-book versions are in two volumes, with one volume containing books one and two and the second volume containing books three and four of the four books of the Latin Picatrix. If you have the the two e-book volumes you have the complete Picatrix! Picatrix is translated & annotated by the noted scholars, magicians and astrologers John Michael Greer & Christopher Warnock, Picatrix takes its rightful place as an essential occult text. Picatrix is an encyclopedic work with over 300 pages of Hermetic magical philosophy, ritual, talismanic and natural magic. Greer & Warnock's complete translation is lucid and well annotated. Renaissance Astrology & Adocentyn Press have released the complete Picatrix in a variety of different editions, including the Liber Atratus, Liber Rubeus and Liber Viridis-Green Magic editions. All editions contain the same basic text, but add additional variant passages, either from the Arabic Picatrix or authors cited, but not found in the Latin Picatrix. The Liber Atratus edition adds a passage on poisons from Ibn Washiyya's Book of Poisons.
