Jun 13, Nandakishore Varma rated it liked it. Want to Read saving…. The one very bad thing about this book is its’ binding. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Out of Print–Limited Availability. Those without knowledge of the development of mystical thought and alchemy would not be able to enjoy the wealth of information this book provides. The book is a decent primer in alchemy, delivering a steady discussion of the bulletpoints relevant to a very weird and interesting time in the development of Western thought.

Just like walking around a museum for hours will cause you to walk past Van Goghs and Picasso’s in indifference, starring at these for too long will cause insensitivity or- even worse- literal mindedness. If you are well read in mysticism and the history of alchemy, this is the book for you.

There’s a larger version of this book I remember reading, but this particularly volume trades off some detail in the individual drawing for a far more portable and convenient size. This is a great visual porthole into the history of metaphysical thought, the early development of scientific thinking, and the romance of symbolic image-making.
Nov 08, Anton rated it really liked it Shelves: This purging of anything mystical, indeed seemingly anything that goes beyond explicating the mechanistic elaborations of atoms, is precisely what one of my favorite writers, Joris-Karl Huysmans, bemoaned in his seminal works of A Rebours and La Bas.
To say one has ‘read’ this book is deceiving ones self. It explains or perhaps,gives an interpenetration to all the various meanings of all those symbols that Alchemists, Mystics, “heretics”, and Astrologers have used throughout history.
