De Alchemia (Used)
by Geber [Jabir]
Book ID: 10659, 10659
Nurnberg 1541, Photocopy, very good clear production with all the famous plates present, bound in thick brown buckram. From the library of Fred Scharna. One of the most important of all medieval alchemical books, Here is what Ritman says in his memoires: "On 3 January 1983, the day when Frans Janssen took office as director of the Bibliotheca Philosophica Hermetica, he entered a new acquisition in the register of purchases, De alchemia by the medieval alchemist Geber. Published in Nuremberg in 1541, it contains some of the most influential alchemical treatises to have come out of the Middle Ages. Among these is the first printed Latin text of what can be termed the Constitution of alchemy, the Tabula Smaragdina of Hermes Trismegistus, with a commentary by Hortulanus" There has been no reprint of this book in any form that I have been able to trace and there are no online editions or scans. Auctions used to turn up copies fairly regularly up to a few years ago but the original has now become fairly rare recently.

He'll show up just when we least want him, to embarrass us on a
first date, to prove us fools in front of the learned company
we're trying to impress, to make us miss a power breakfast with
that all-important business contact."
- Richard Smoley, from the introduction

An imposing figure in black raiment, he is most often pictured as a corpse. His other magical domains, less discussed in esoteric literature, include disruption, obscenity and -- importantly for the practicing sorcerer -- not only the arts of Magic but the very fabric of which it is made.
Emergent from the spiritual crossroads of traditional Vodou and English w...
