The image below of both good and evil numbers are said to be from the Secrets of the Rosicrucians. It is taken from an old book called the “Holy Guide, Leading the Way to the Wonder of the World: A Complete Physician, teaching the knowledge of all things, past, present, and to come. (London, 1662) It was written by John Heydon and dedicated to the Duke of York.

It is said to contain the secrets pleasure, long life, health, youth, blessedness, wisdom and virtue, and to cure, change, and remedy all diseases in young and old : with Rosicrucian medicines which are verified by a practical examination of principles in the great world and fitted for the ease of understanding, plain practise, use, and benefit of mean capacities.

Herelies a wonderful virtue, worth, and efficacy in Numbers, as well to good, as to bad; and they say, Angels may be as frequently converse with as Devils, by the direction and help of the Figure before; and the eminent Philosophers do unanimously teach, and learned Doctors, both in Divinity, in the Law, and Doctors of Physik, and in occult mysteries in chemistry, and in Rosicrucian Secrets practice.

In the title he calls himself a Servant of God and a Secretary of Nature.’ The various books into which the ‘Holy Guide‘ is divided have different dedications.
