London: Printed for T.M. for Samuel Ferris, and are to be sold at his Shop in Cannon-street neer London-stone, 1662. Plain leather binding with blind tooling; first blank frontis missing; a well handled volume; the volume is for practical purposes in six books (five books for the Holy Guide and one for "The Rosie Cross Uncovered", plus the preliminary matter includes a "Chymical Dictionary" as well; a GOOD copy with all faults. Collation of text is correct, but misnumbering of pages occurs in Books III & IV with the latter section bearing the majority of the misprints; a nice plate near the end of the preface, and an intriguing plate on "astromancy and geomancy, good and evil" falls at rear of Book II. Heydon's work makes constant mention of the Brotherhood of the Rose Cross. Fly leaf is pasted down over old book plate. Octavo. (Item ID: 14965)
