Occult physick, or The three principles in nature anatomized by a philosophical opperation [sic] : taken from experience, in three books. The first of beasts, trees, herbs, and their magical and physical vertues. The second book containeth most excellent and rare medicines for all diseases happening to the bodies of both men and women, which never yet saw the light; an incomparable piece. The third and last book, is a denarian tract, shewing how to cure all diseases with ten medicaments; and the mystery of the quarternary, and quinary number opened; with a table shewing the suns rising, setting, hours of the day, hours of the night, and how many minutes are contained in a planetary hour both day and night; with a table of the signs continuance on the ascendent, fitted for magical uses; as gathering of herbs, roots, and the like, with their uses. Whereunto is added a neccessary [sic] tract, shewing how to judge of a disease by the affliction of the moon, upon the sight of the patients urine, with an example; also you are taught how to erect a figure of heaven for any time given.
