It's a book of spells or a textbook of magic.  The usage is 18th Century and 
the word is French.  This probably reflects the revived interest in magic 
and alchemy that occurred in France prior to the French Revolution.  English 
usage doesn't really start until the 19th Century.  The word likely derives 
from grammaire (OF) which refers to any book written in Latin.
