Absolutely fascinating- many facts, sources, plus a very interesting topic.
As complete a history of Alchemy I have yet to read. It is so much much more than the attempt or early science of turning base metals into gold or silver. There were secret or inner meanings to alchemy involving symbolism, metaphysics, and it's practice was considered a spiritual path. This book contains a universe of information on the subject and is well worth reading to anyone who wants to know more on this engaging subject.
