Notes:

Photographic reproduction of a 17th century book on alchemy.

In spite of its title, a long and detailed work that seems both philosophical and technical. The title seems intended to give the impression that this is the secret knowledge of the author, only committed to paper at the approach of death. Includes a reference to using hazel rods for dowsing for minerals (pp.58 ff).

On the CD The Emerald Tablets of Thoth and Other Books on Alchemy, Hermeticism, Rosicrucianism and Magic (135.45 VAR 8389).
