72 Seals of the Shemhamephoresh (BNF Lat.18510)




I am indebted for this manuscript to QiRui Huo, as I am for the forthcoming one. 

Manuscript Lat.18510 can be found online HERE

The title is Testamenti sive claviculae Salomonis scientia enucleata ad Roboam.

The note on its incipit, detailing what pages are blank, is dated 22dn July 1870, so we can presume an earlier date of redaction. 

As Jeremie Segouin and Andy Foster have communicated to me, it's becoming more and more likely that this is just a vast collection of pentacles that was attributed randomly to the 72 angels. This manuscript as we can observe, contains an extra 2 from the canonical number. Further study and comparing is necessary of course. The present manuscript does not link these pentacles to the angels. 

Out of all the manuscripts so far, this is the worst drawn example, in my opinion, but a precious point of reference to tracing their history.  The numbering is my own.
