        A Pen Drawing by Robert Lenkiewicz of Assay Balances used in Alchemical and Chemical Processes, after a woodcut in an early edition of Georg Bauer's De Re Metallica. Lenkiewicz's drawing is undated, but was probably executed in the 1970s.

      - In blue ink on a sheet of white paper. The size of the immediate image and surrounds (as shown) is approx. 13 inches high x 8.5 inches wide (330mm high x 216mm wide). The size of the whole sheet of which this is a part is 15 inches high x 11 inches wide (381mm high x 279mm wide). Robert Oscar Lenkiewicz (1941 - 2002) was a renowned British artist, Hermeticist, and student of the alchemical arts, who was also well-known as an eccentric and book-collector. He was a regular visitor to the British Library and the British Museum, where he made careful sketches based on the illustrations and diagrams that were relevant to his studies that he found in rare alchemical manuscripts and books. This is one such drawing. It was kept by Lenkiewicz in a large folio entitled "On Alchemical Apparatus," and was evidently related to his personal researches into the subject, rather than being a "finished artwork" that was intended for exhibition or sale. As such it is not signed, although we do provide a guarantee and certificate of authenticity. The drawing is evidently after a woodcut in an early edition of Georg Bauer's De Re Metallica (On the Nature of Metals / Minerals) that was first published in 1556. It deals primarily with the subjects of the mining, smelting and refining of metals, and was also - for obvious reasons - much favored by those interested in Alchemy. There are two small holes punched in the extreme left margin, and a partial finger print (doubtless the artist's) in the upper margin, none of which effect the image area. There are also several small light brown discolored patches, and there is an ink smudge slightly to the left of and below the text in the bottom margin (visible in the attached photographs). There is a light crease across the center of the page. A little light creasing at the edges, otherwise VG condition.
