As noted in the Magnum Opus Hermetic Sourceworks
http://www.alchemy.dial.pipex.com/mohs15.html

British Library Harley 6482.

It is a late 17th century compendium of the Western esoteric ideas on Angel magic and includes sections on the Schemhamphoras, the daemonic hierarchies of fallen angels, the Images of the Mansions of the Moon, the Nature Spirits, and John Dee's Enochian system of Angel conjuration, and concludes with Dr. Rudd's Treatise on the Nine Hierarchies of Angels and their Conjuration to visible appearance. It is thus an important sourcework on Angel conjuration, correspondences and symbolism, and will be of great value to occultists, both practically and for assessing the broad spectrum of the ideas of Angel Magic that lived in Medieval and Renaissance occultism.
