Center for Enochian Studies, Volume I, Appendix A.

Analytical Contents

 

This month the Center for Enochian Studies presents a analysis of the contents of Doctor John Dee's Mysteriorum Liber Primus. The Table of Contents is adapted and expanded from a partial listing, in an unknown hand, made toward the end of Libri Quinti Appendix, and is in substance what appears under the title 'Index Lib. Primus' on folio 113 of Sloane MS.3188. This has been elaborated, and is followed by the assignment of pagenation, to the articles which have appeared in our serialization. Concluding this article is an index to the texts of Ashmole and Dee as they appear in the given text of SL. MS. 3188.
