Publisher's Summary

Roger Bacon was born in England in 1219, and while he is primarily remembered as a philosopher, linguist, educator, and scientist, he also spent a fair amount of time exploring the art of alchemy. The Mirror of Alchemy is one of the many texts he produced on the subject during his lifetime. 

The chapter titles include "Of the Definitions of Alchemy", "Of the Natural Principles and Procreation of Minerals", "Out of What Things the Matter of Elixir Must Be More Nearly Extracted", "Of the Manner of Working and of Moderating and Continuing the Fire", "Of the Quality of the Vessel and Furnace", "Of the Accidental and Essential Colors Appearing in the Work", and "How to Make Projection of the Medicine Upon Any Imperfect Body".
