Manuscript on paper of Georg Rollenhagen (1542-1606), Isagoge in astrologiam. This manuscript is apparently the autograph of the Astrologia iudiciaria sive genethliacum reported to have been composed by this German evangelical minister, rector of the Gymnasium at Magdeburg and poet. Many blank pages. Apparently copied by one hand writing a small Humanistica Cursiva Currens in many different forms, often difficult to decipher. Headings in the same script or in fancy capitals. The passages in German are in Gothica Cursiva Currens. Artt. 2 and 3 are more carefully executed than the main part. Astrological diagrams, tables and calculations, all like the text of a rapid execution.
Binding: Original half binding of blind-tooled white pigskin decorated with rolls, the covers in an unorthodox way covered with green-blue blind-tooled parchment (?). On the front cover the gold-tooled initials "IMD" and the date "1599". Spine with three raised bands, with the number "10" painted in red in the second compartment. At the top illegible title label.
f. 103a: inserted leaflet with annotations of births in German, dated 1597 and 1599.
Manuscript on paper.
Tightly bound with some loss of text in gutter.
200 x 160 and 200 x 155 mm.
