Elegantly SIGNED and INSCRIBED by Greer: "For Clive [Harper] with my best [signed] John Michael Greer." From the publisher: "De Imaginibus, "On Images" is, after Picatrix, the most important text for medieval and Renaissance astrological magic. De Imaginibus is accepted as the work of Harranian Sabian sage Thabit Ibn Qurra. Written in the 9th century A.D. and the product of the Neoplatonic and Hermetic wisdom of the Harranian Sabians, the book was a key source for the Picatrix as well as being consulted by Albertus Magnus, Marsilio Ficino and Cornelius Agrippa. De Imaginibus represents the height of astrological magic technique and goes far beyond merely planetary talismans in using the full range of traditional astrological technique developed by the sophisticated Harranian Sabians. De Imaginibus explains how to create house based talismans, how to use horary questions to forecast and anchor talismans and how to tune talismans to individual natal charts. The translator, John Michael Greer, is a noted Latinist and esoteric author. He is the co-translator of the Complete Picatrix. This translation was made from Francis Carmody's Latin critical edition of the astronomical works of Thabit Ibn Qurra and contains two variant texts along with extensive commentary by Christopher Warnock, the leading astrological magician and examples of talisman elections using Thabit's methods."
