Duh!!!

Answering my own question, the key to the cipher is provided elsewhere in the same work:

Just a standard Masonic/Rosicrucian cipher as it turns out. If you want it as a TrueType font you can download it from here (bottom of the page):

Actually it's a slightly adapted form of that cipher and the TrueType font I found is not a lot of use anyway as it uses the same character for two different letter-equivalents!

Here is the key to the cipher anyway in three jpegs. Someone might find it useful.
