The Book of Eibon was one of many ancient tomes and magical talismans possessed by Doctor Strange (Stephen Strange), the Sorcerer Supreme. It was stolen along the rest of those mystic items and the full Sanctum Sanctorum by Urthona, a sorcerer from planet Gevaltu. Outforced, Strange was forced to destroy the books and talismans to prevent Urthona from using them. The Book of Eibon was later restored to Strange by Agamotto.
The "frightful" Book of Eibon was a mean to summon "strange creatures and stranger gods".
