KING'S 288

(From British Library)

'LA CLAVICULE de Salomon, roi des Hebreux, traduite
de l'Hebreux en Italien par Abraham Colorno, par ordre
de S. A. S. [Guglielmo or Vincenzo Gonzaga] de Man-
toue, mise nouvellement en François': a treatise on
magic with coloured diagrams and their explanations.
Other copies are in Harley MS. 3981 and Sloane MS.
3091. The text, though not identical, bears a consider-
able resemblance to the Latin of Add. MS. 10862. For
the translator, a Jewish engineer of Mantua (fl. 1578-
1598), see Giuseppe Jarè, Abramo Colorni, Mantua,
1874. Jarè mentions another copy of the French at
Vienna, but no copy of the Italian.

Paper; ff. 141. Quarto .91/4 in. x 71/4 in. XVIII cent. Black
leather binding, slightly tooled.
