I keep seeing this image as the first known image of a crop circle.

Is this a genuine old document, or a modern fake?

(lets not bother discussing whether circles are real, okay. )

it is a genuine document from 1678. cite (http://www.worldcatlibraries.org/wcpa/top3mset/33ba1aaf4c6bfaaba19afeb4da09e526.html). It's actually here at the uni library were I so inclined.
