Latin text below image:

Ecce Saturnus minitatur unca

Falce vel parvis sine mentis usu,

Cernis aurigam celerem Draconum

Alite curru.

Astra percurrit senior, petitque

Imbrium Regis loca Capricorni;

Praebet ast dorsum celerans Aquaeri

Cominus urnae.

Possidet Phoebi decus Occidentis

Omne terrarum; reperit fodinas.

Et magos implet genio sinistro

Ceu Deus artis.

Quod riget plumbum, quod habetque pondus,

Iura Saturni subit: huius ergo

Subditi tales animis rigentes

Corde gravescunt.

Very good condition
