Exercitatio, de amuletis, aeneis figuris illustrata.

Julius Reichelt was born on June 8, 1637, in the free city of Strasbourg. He died on 19 February 1719. He was an astronomer and professor of mathematics at the University of Strasbourg.

He was also the initiator of a Specula Astronomica (astronomical observatory), which will be the first of three observatories that the city of Strasbourg will experience. He entered the University of Strasbourg on October 16, 1644. In 1660, he graduated as a doctor of philosophy, then named professor of mathematics in 1667 and he was also probably a former student of Helvetius.

Julius Reichelt collected talismans and amulets with passion. The figures engraved on copper in the original work represent dozens of amulets that he could glean. In his book, he explains the symbolism and the expected effects, drawing on his knowledge of cabal and astrology.

Reichelt's work details eight illustrated plates of many talismans, engraved on copper, full page. The illustrations includes terms in Latin with some Greek and Hebrew too.

This little pamphlet contains the 8 boards of magic talismans.
