 According to this article
https://www.atlasobscura.com/articles/protect-your-library-the-medieval-way-with-horrifying-book-curses

and the book it cites, some medieval scribes (who created books by hand)
wrote curses in their books, threatening book thieves with death, or worse.


When Penric was a student, the books he used were handmade.  I don't recall
curses in those books.  Were there any?  Can anyone suggest appropriate
curses to protect your favorite books?
