The Legend of Zelda manual

The Book of Magic, also known as the Magic Book, is an item from The Legend of Zelda. It is one of two treasures of Level 8 during the First Quest. In the Second Quest, the book can be found in Level 4. If Link already has the Magical Rod, obtaining the Book of Magic changes the nature of the spell cast by the wand; when the magic sent from the wand hits a wall or other solid object, it bursts into flame. If the room is dark, the effect is the same as when Link uses the Blue Candle or the Red Candle.

Interestingly, the Book of Magic resembles a stereotypical depiction of the holy book of Christianity, the Bible, as it has a cross on its cover. This is due to the fact that the Book of Magic was actually called the Bible in the Japanese version of the game. It was likely changed for all subsequent releases due to Nintendo of America's strict content guidelines.
