[Seals of the planets]; [manuscript].

Title:
[Seals of the planets] [manuscript].
Abstract:
A manual on talismans or seals, thought to help manifest the powers of the planets when created in metal or on parchment. For Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, and Saturn, as well as the Moon and Sun, there is a brief text accompanied by five seal faces (except in the case of the Moon, which has four). Three faces have esoteric zodiacal and planetary signs and names, some with Hebrew letters; the fourth has a magic square (array of numbers) associated with the planet; and the fifth has a careful ink drawing of the planet represented as a divinity in human form.
