Publisher's Summary

This book contains the secrets of alchemical transformation in fairly clear language through the various stages of sol and luna in dynamic interplay along with many references to other classics of alchemy. First published in 1623, it has long been considered one of the classic texts on the transmutation of the metals - the creation of the elixir and the stone of the wise.

great narrator excellent alchemy reference book!

this book is a must have for historical authentic references for any modern philosophical alchemist. it was a long hard and dry read however the information contained, although a textbook and for reference only really is mind blowing and important if you are a serious student of alchemy.

Ludicrous nonsense.

This was appallingly bad. It is filled with old world Christian judgements etc.
Read the Kybalion it is excellent.
