Eirenaeus here reveals loads of information about Alchemy, all in a poetic, lyrical style. Methods of purification are given, and the virtues of bodily fluids are given. Discussion about all 3 kingdoms of alchemy takes place, which is a rarity in many Alchemy books, although there seems less on the Animal Kingdom. While the price is expensive, the amount of lore you get in this book makes it worth it. Buy this book!
Altho' our Gold is not so oft revealed here, for it is in many other works delineated, yet the other most secret aspects of the Work are freely, if not always clearley, given to the Sons of Art. On the Secret Fire and its preparation from the Fountain, the attendant signs are described in the Fountain of Chymical Philosophy, p. 511-513. Take heed and note that it rises as a smoke, and is a sublimed salt, not a water, tho' it is so styled, and from a water derived. Then too, the proportion between the Man and his Wife is given many times, but most so on p.217-218. Remember, it is the number of eagles made in the rectification of thy water from the fountain that determines its internal fire; and this, in turn, determines its proportion to our Gold, old Adam, which is the powder of the highest body we commonly know. To this I will add that there is a third component, oft confused, and that is the Bond of Mercury; for this, see p 348-350 which joins the dry powders of the Man and his Wife. If you know the Fountain, then you know this common universal Mercury.
Thus far have I gone, and then some, but not to the end; yet all the signs have been seen, including the Net which catches the Stars, seen in the preparation of the sublime secret fire.
If thou hast found these words, then take cheer, for all my experience hath shown me that I was guided to this point, as must be you.
