The X-th Century Muslim author and bibliographer Ibn al-Nadim mentions in his catalogue of Arabic books known as Kitab al-Fihrist a book of Hermes under the name Kitab Tasyir al-Kawakib or in English translation The Book on the Primary Directions of the Planets. Unfortunately this book is considered lost - I mean the opinion of Fuat Sezgin in Geschichte des Arabischen Schrifttums, Leiden, 1979, band VII, p.58.

But a chapter (fasl) of this book devoted on the celestial cycles (dur), primary directions (tasyir) and profections (intiha) is preserved ONLY in the National Library of Egypt (Dar al-Kutub).

I suppose that Rumen will find and will obtain a copy of this book of Hermes.

Important remark: Mercury is now in Gemini with Moon and makes an application trine with Jupiter and the most important thing is that Mercury (Hermes) makes a phase today - Evening First .
