In German, Latin, and Hebrew, illustrated manuscript on paper [Germany, late 16th century]
9 ff. of paper (watermark: armoiries, écu avec pal arqué, en haut coupé en forme de nuage, not identified), complete (collation i(8+1)), written in a single hand on 18-23 long lines in brown ink in a cursive hand (justification c. 130 x 170 mm.), with seven pen and ink drawings and 28 diagrams. Modern binding, with title “L / ..ro / Graf” (In good condition throughout). Dimensions 200 x 160 mm.
Of a modest appearance, this small manuscript, written in cursive script and illustrated with meticulous pen and ink drawings, is most likely a manual for the composition of talismans or seals perhaps for use by a physician-alchemist. Its pages present a combination of astrological seals with diagrammatic talismans in Greek and Hebrew letters along the lines of those created by Agrippa and Paracelsius.
