The Hermetic Museum was published in Latin at Frankfort, in the year 1678, and, as its title implies, it was an enlarged form of an anterior work which, appearing in 1625, is more scarce, but, intrinsically, of less value. Its design was apparently to supply in a compact form a representative collection of the more brief and less ancient alchemical writers; in this respect, it may be regarded as a supplement to those large storehouses of Hermetic learning such as the Theatrum Chemicum, and that scarcely less colossal of Mangetus, the Bibliotheca Chemica Curiosa, which are largely concerned with the cream of the archaic literature, with the works of Geber and the adepts of the school of Arabia, with the writings attributed to Hermes, with those of Raymond Lully, Arnold de Villa Nova, Bernard Trevisan, and others. This is volume 1 out of 2. Contents: Preface To The English Edition. The Preface Of The Original Edition. The Golden Tract The Golden Age Restored: The Sophic Hydrolith A Brief Exposition Of The Wonderful Water Stone Of The Wise, Commonly Called The Philosopher's Stone. A Demonstration Of Nature, A Short Tract, Or Philosophical Summary The Only True Way; The Glory Of The World; The Third Part Of This Treatise, Containing The Dicta Of The Sages. Another Tract,Corresponding To The First, Which May Be Read With Great Profit. A Tract Of Great Price Concerning The Philosophical Stone. The True Teaching Of Philosophy Concerning The Generation Of Metals And Their True Origin. A Very Brief Tract Concerning The Philosophical Stone. The Book Of Alze. The Book Of Lambspring, The Golden Tripod (First Tract)

This work represents a distinctive school of alchemy -- it belonged to a period that had inherited a bitter experience of the failures, impostures, and misery surrounding the "Magnum Opus" and its mystical quest. The treatises contained in this volume are by the authors of historical legend: John de Mehung, Nicholas Flamel, Basil Valentine, Eirenaeus Philalethes, Helvetius, Michael Maier, Michael Sendivogius, Nicholas Barnaud Delphinas, and Basilius Valentinus. Illustrated.

A major work... An extraordinary tour de force...' - New Scientist Colin Wilson came to realize, through his own cathartic experiences, that all of us are in fact manifold personalities, that we each consist of a ladder or hierarchy of selves, and that the upper members may be called upon at will. He explains how these discoveries led him to the view that our integral multiple personalities are the explanation for a wide diversity of paranormal phenomena, from dowsing and demonic possession to precognition and spoon-bending. "Man's being is like a vast mansion, yet he seems to live in a single room in the basement."
