Seattle: Ouroboros Press, 2009. First printing. In the beginning of his Cantus Circaeus, Bruno portrays the doctrine of correspondence as used with the seven planetary invocations, which are themselves tokens of praxis in the Hermetic tradition. The incantatory litanies include the names, attributes, plants, stones, animals, and other qualities associated with the astral bodies, and are thus memory palaces of planetary arcana. Through dialogue, Circe and her assistant Moeris explicate the use of images in the imagination in order to facilitate use of the Art of Memory which constitutes the latter half of the text. Full leather bound with gilt titles in fine condition. Item #25885
