Notes: This is a copy of the 'Calendarium Naturale Magicum', compiled by Grossschedel von Aicha and published by de Bry in 1620. The emblematic figures from the original engraving have been cut up into individual sections and pasted into this manuscript, and the text from the original plate added in black and red lettering. Each page is set within a red border decorated at the top. The Calendarium Naturale Magicum is thus analysed in its various sections 'Tabula Prima... Tabula Duodecima'. Additional text material in way of explanation and examples has been added to the sections within the Tabula Septima dealing with the seven planetary onomantic tables of fortune.
Note inside back cover: 'This looks like one of Bacstrom's Ms'.
