It is the N.E.W.T. level set text for Potions during Harry Potter’s sixth year (HBP9) and cost nine Galleons brand-new (HBP11). The book was originally written around the year 1946 (HBP16) and contains instructions for making the Draught of Living Death starting at page 10 (HBP9).
Other contents include:
- Felix Felicis (Liquid Luck) (HBP9, HBP24),
- An Elixir to Induce Euphoria (HBP22),
- Everlasting Elixirs (HBP15), and
- an explanation of Golpalott’s Third Law, in the chapter on Antidotes (HBP18).
The author's first name is likely a play on the word 'libation' meaning a drink, particularly one drunk or given as part of a ceremony or ritual. Borage is a type of herb.
