It is unknown when the host volume entered the collections of the Reformed College in Cluj. We have the usual stamp from 1871 (verso of frontispiece), but no earlier ownership note.
This is the second edition of the book; the first one was published in Leipzig in 1723. Further editions follow in 1738, 1757, 1762... This well-known hermetical book is said to have influenced young Goethe.
