Description

John Dee (1527-1608) was one of the most influential figures of the Elizabethan age. He studied mathematics and astrology and from an early age was supposed to practise magic. Ashmole owned a number of Dee's manuscripts (now in the British Library) and obtained this portrait while gathering material for a biography, which, however, he never wrote.
