Aula Lucis: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This short tract was created in the middle of the 17th century- as a work of mostly physical alchemy, it's better than most, at least in terms of being understood; all alchemical works contain veils, metaphors, allusions, but Thomas Vaughan's work is less so than many. It alludes to the philosophic fire spoken of by Pontanus (literally, a heap of composting manure to supply...
The Stone of the Philosophers: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This work is quite interesting; written by Edward Kelly (sometimes spelled 'Kelley') while he was under imprisonment (either for murder or for failing to make gold using alchemy!) it is a discourse proving, he believes, several alchemical principles he held at the time, by referring to other parties' works; philosophers, alchemical authors, and works of alchemy of both known and...

Golden Chain of Homer: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
When works of alchemy are made, mostly they fixate on obscure philosophy- the only exceptions I have encountered are this work and some of Paracelsus' materials. The Golden Chain of Homer, however, is explicit and describes actual alchemical experiments and their recipes.
For those interested in alchemy this work is highly recommended; it may be seen as a somewhat dense but...
Coming Soon: The Golden Chain of Homerby Styxhexenhammer666When we discuss alchemical texts we are most often reviewing elaborate systems of symbolism involving celestial and other phenomena. With the Golden Chain of Homer, this is assuredly not the case. Of middling length, (64 pages,) the work ruminates far more on the actual chemical processes behind alchemy; humidification and distillation especially. "Released" (and almost surely written) by Anton...
A Manuscript of Alchemy: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
Another text on alchemy, this time rather short (only 26 pages) but well worth a read anyways. Written by some unknown "German sage" many centuries ago, and like the Chemical Art, it is partly philosophical, ascribing natural forces, especially the action of the sun on mountains, deep-earth vapors, and other movements and forces, to the creation of gold and silver within the...
Book of the Chemical Art: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
Now we come to an important (and well made) philosophical treatise regarding alchemy, one all the more easily appreciated because it gives us a snapshot of the Renaissance, courtesy of Ficinus, and the opinions given at that era concerning alchemy as it related to what was, even then, considered folkish superstition. Specifically refuting some of the more physical aspects of court...
Rosary of the Philosophers Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666After two weeks of waiting the files for the Rosary have been verified by Amazon- as such, it is now happily available!
This text is substantially longer than most of the other titles I have edited, at around 170 pages; it is an alchemical work with numerous illustrations to which I have added a substantial foreword. It dwells on various physical processes like mortification and...
