Collection Overview

Collection Description & Creator Information


Collection consists of three individually bound horoscopes, circa 1678, in German and some Latin, all prepared for Baron Alexander von Enke (1650-87), who served in the army of the Electorate of Saxony and fought against the Ottoman Turks during the Great Turkish War (1683-1699). Von Enke died of a fever on the Ionian Greek island of Zakynthos (Zante) in 1687. Johann Henrich Voigt (1613-1691), an astronomer, astrologer, and almanac-compiler, who lived in Stade (a city north of Hamburg) and other places, prepared two of the volumes. The author of the third is unknown.
