Robert Fludd, Utriusque Cosmi, 1619

Illustrations from Robert Fludd's 1619 mishmash of Paracelsan alchemy, Kabbalah, Protestant theology, Hermetic mysticism, Platonic philosophy, Rosicrucianism, and sundry other incompatible systems., titled Utriusque Cosmi, Maioris scilicet et Minoris, metaphysica, physica, atque technica Historia. Fludd had pretensions toward science but Kepler dismissed him as "a theosophist, not a philosopher."
