ePub De Heptarchia Mystica ePub

by John Dee

This book consists of detailed instructions for communicating with angels and employing their aid for practical purposes. It consists of excerpts, in Grimoire form, from Dr. Dee's detailed records of his "mystical exercises".

This is a transcription from the original in Dee's own handwriting, now found in the British Library under the catalog number Sloane 3191. There have been two other published editions of this text, one by Robert Turner, 1983 revised 1986, and another by Geoffrey James, 1984 and 1994. While I can recommend both of these editions, if one is able to find them, I believe the present edition reflects Dee's manuscript more accurately, as may be seen for example by comparing them with the photograph shown on pg. 28 of Turner's revised edition.

Compare this with Dee's Compendium Heptarchiae Mysticae, an earlier version but with some interesting additions and variations.

A note attached to the beginning of the manuscript reads as follows:

This is the original Ms. in Dr. Dee's handwriting. A fair copy by Ashmole is in the Ms. Sloane 3678.

This volume formerly belonged to Ashmole and on the clasps of the *** binding his coat of arms was impressed.

How Ashmole obtained this Ms. appears by his account prefixed to Ms. Sloane 3677.
