Not in-store, but we'd be happy to order one for you.
This special edition of 'Collectanea Chemica: Select Treatises on Alchemy and Hermetic Medicine' was written by Eirenaeus Philalethes, and first published in 1893, making it 125 years old.

This antiquarian text features sections on The Secret of the Immortal Liquor Called Alkahest, The Admiral Efficacy of the True Oil of Sulphur Vive, The Stone of the Philosophers, The Preparation of the Sophic Mercury, and more.

This is an interesting old find and a fascinating read, but we heartily do not recommend trying any of the remedies herein

This is an absolute must-have for all enthusiasts of the evolution of science in general, and in the history of Alchemy in particular.

IMPORTANT NOTE - Please read BEFORE buying


This book is a reprint edition and is a perfect facsimile of the original book. It is not set in a modern typeface and has not been digitally enhanced. As a result, some characters and images might suffer from slight imperfections, blurring, or minor shadows in the page background. This book appears exactly as it did when it was first printed.

At 'Black Books' we do not use OCR (Optical Character Recognition) technology to transcribe books from scanned images or other forms of text - this usually results in everything from strange characters to gibberish. We believe that reading an old book, exactly as it was, is the most satisfying way to read it.

DISCLAIMER: Due to the age of this book, some methods, beliefs, or practices may have been deemed unsafe, undesirable, or unacceptable in the interim years. In utilizing the information herein, you do so at your own risk. We republish antiquarian books without judgment, solely for their historical and cultural importance, and for educational purposes. If purchasing a book more than 50 years old, especially for a minor, please use due diligence and vet the text before gifting.
