Mellon MS 25 ASTROLOGICAL MISCELLANY, in Latin Northern France or Flanders, unsigned, about 1505 25.1 Alchabitius. Liber isagogicus, translated into Latin by Johannes Hispalensis, with the Commentary of Johannes Dank de Saxonia, corrected by Bartholomaeus Alten.
Otherwise I am not an expert in astrology but I would say yes Alchabitius astrology is basically a traditional one. However this has to be confirmed. I was unsuccesful yet with my attempt to discover an electronic version of the cat and rat woodcut, sorry for that. The Ratdolt
arms as I saw them are different at least as a printer they are representing a wild man and a star with two hermetic snakes.
Is Alchabitius' astrology like that in the VMs?
