A transcription made by Adam McLean of a late 17th century manuscript compendium of Western angel magic. This manuscript of Thomas Rudd is now in the British Library as MS Harley 6482. It includes sections on the Schemhamphoras, the hierarchies of fallen angels, the images of the Mansions of the Moon, the Nature spirits and other such material. It includes a section on John Dee's Enochian system of Angel conjuration. The work concludes with a longer piece by Rudd, his Treatise on the Nine Hierarchies of Angels and their conjuration to visible appearance. This manuscript is thus an astounding sourcework on angelic conjuration, correspondences and symbolism, and will be of value, both to scholars and to esotericists, in assessing the broad spectrum of ideas present in Renaissance angel magic.
