Scan/photographic reproduction of a book published in 1664.
The book begins with an account of John Heydon's life; it then becomes quite a technical account of the alchemical elixir, with astrological references (especially relating to the Angels of the Planets). It seems to equate Rosicrucianism with Alchemy.
