Photographic reproduction of a 17th century book about the medicinal uses of 'mumie' or 'mummy' - a substance that has inspired much speculation, but is described in great detail here. The information is apparently derived from the works of the Swiss physician Paracelsus.

With an introduction by the astrologer William Lilly.
