Introduction

TOP

The Seals of Stones of Solomon, are often included in collections of Renaissance and medieval talismanic and astrological images that include the Seals of Thetel, Seals & Sigils of Chael and the Images & Figures of Hermes. We can see an example of this typical collection in the 17th century Sloane 3822 manuscript, but examples of individual sections date back to the 12th century. The current translation of the Images and Figures of Hermes appeared in the Dutch physician Herman Boerhaave's An essay on the virtue and efficient cause of magnetical cures, published in London in 1743. The original pagination of the 1743 edition has been retained.
