The emphasis is on practice and accurate interpretation, not on history.

A Booke, no less pleasant and recreative, then of a wittie invention, to knowe all things, past, present, and to come. (publ. London, 1591).

"Creation proceedeth by division. Two and two and two and two, and thou hast all the world."
-- Nathaniel Crowfoot, alchemist, geomancer, Cheshire, 1810
