Caption: John Dee (1527-1608). 19th Century artwork of the British mathematician, astronomer, astrologer and occultist John Dee. Dee was an expert in geometry and trigonometry, and taught navigation to captains in the British Navy. Dee spent much of his time casting horoscopes and making contact with the spirit world. He was imprisoned in 1553 after casting a horoscope for Queen Mary Tudor, who accused him of trying to kill her with sorcery. After his release he advised Queen Elizabeth on science and astrology. In his later life his interest in the supernatural increased despite the suspicions of those around him, and he ultimately fell into disrepute. Published in 'Old England' by Charles Knight (1860).

Release details: Model release not required. Property release not available.
