Collection ... Astrology material before 1500

Maybe it's a good idea to collect such findings, instead that they distribute through various threads.

Likely already known by many, but indeed rather nice:

Cod. Pal. germ. 832
Heidelberger Schicksalsbuch
Regensburg, nach 1491
lots of pictures ... ca85db3152

[quote]1v-27r Astrologischer Kalender nach Regiomonotanus
28r-33r Erläuterungen zum Gebrauch des Kalenders sowie für das Astrolabium planum
36r-83v Johannes Angelus nach Pietro d'Abano (?): Astrolabium planum, illustriert, dt.
84r-92r Von den 36 Sternbildern nach Michael Scotus

Re: Collection ... Astrology material before 1500

I've brought this book up in regard to the God-denying fool but Kolve also has a chapter dedicated to the Sun in Gemini with several manuscript images reproduced (which Google Books unfortunately leaves out - you'll need to view the book at your local library); Google books link with search set to Gemini: ... ni&f=false

I'm not keen on his emphasis of the supposedly repressed "orientation" and gender of Gemini, but his review of the body of calendar images is informative:
