Glasgow: Magnum Opus Hermetic Sourceworks, 1983. First edition. This magical note book written by Dee during 1582-83 is an elaborate and spiritual account of planetary magical operations for invoking the planetary angels, and includes a list of the forms in which some of these spirits appear, together with some magic letter squares and sigils. The angel Uriel is foremost in these operations which obviously are the foundation upon which much of the Enochian or Angelic workings were built. Robert Turner has transcribed the text from the original manuscript and provides explanatory notes and commentary on this important text. The Heptarchia Mystica seems to be a work standing between the 16th century magical systems derived from Peter of Abano or the Picatrix, and the unique system that Dee and Kelley brought into being in their Angelic Magic. Very good condition. Item #21916
