THE DWELLINGS OF THE PHILOSOPHERS
Boulder, 1999. First edition. Fine condition in very good dust jacket; Jacket has a few small scrapes to the fore-edge.. The true identity of the alchemical adept calling himself "Fulcanelli" has never been publicly discovered but there are few who would not recognize his works as the most significant contribution to the Great Art in more than 100 years. The author displays an immense knowledge of the practices of Alchemy and of the Alchemists of the Middle Ages. For for the first time he makes clear the differences between Chemistry, Spagyrics, Archemy, and Alchemy. For many, the most amazing revelation of the book will be the author's review and exhaustive interpretation of the extensive statuary, bas relief, and other artistic devices built into the homes of numerous Medieval Alchemists. These works of art for centuries have revealed openly the secrets of Alchemy to all who have the eyes to see. This long awaited, meticulously translated work from the original French will be of immense benefit to those who seek to understand Alchemy for what it truly is-the art and science of Creation and Transformation of physical form through the agency of Man. With thirty-nine illustrations by Julien Champagne; Translated by Brigitte Donvez and Lionel Perrin; Limited issue of 300 copies bound in leather, though low quality bonded leather, tan marbled end papers and red marking ribbon; 550 pages.
