The illustration shown below is of the "Enochian", "Angelic" or "Adamical" alphabet as drawn by Edward Kelley on the 6th of May 1583, at the end of the Loagaeth (in MS. Sloane 3189 - note that this is not the same as Dee' copy of the alphabet in MS. Sloane 3188, which is slightly different).

Dee's diary entry contains this note: "But it is to be noted that when E.K. could not aptly imitate the form of the characters or letters as they were shewed, that then they appeared drawn on his paper with a light yellow colour, which he drew the black upon and so the yellow colour disappearing, there remained only the shape of the letter in black..."

Regarding the letters themselves, Dee notes in a conversation with the angel Il (28th April 1583): Dee: And first I think that those letters of our Adamical alphabet have a due peculiar unchangeable proportion of their forms, and likewise that their order is also mystical. Il: These letters represent the creation of man, and therefore they must be in proportion. They represent the workmanship wherewithal the soul of man was made like unto his creator.

About Author:

Born at Worcester, August 1, 1555. Started life as an apothecary, but later attended Oxford University under the name of Talbot. Studied law and for a time practiced as a notary.

According to tradition, while in the vicinity of Glastonbury Abbey (which by the way, has played such a notable part in so many incidents in Rosicrucian history) he became possessed of a manuscript by St. Dunstan, which inspired him to take up the study of Alchemy.

It is known to a reasonable degree of certainty that he did know both the red and white transmuting tinctures. Kelley had well developed psychical powers, and in 1583 was knighted by the Emperor Rudolph II at Prague, although in 1589 the same Emperor imprisoned him to extort the transmutative secrets from him, in which he was unsuccessful. He was released in 1593, and died in 1595 as the result of an accident incurred while attempting to escape.
