Basil Valentine's Twelve Keys of alchemy is among the most notorious alchemical works ever crafted. Originally written at the very end of the 16th century, it was almost immediately rendered into English and widely regarded. Containing a series of parables and metaphors regarding the process of creating the Philosopher's Stone, the Twelve Keys claim that alchemy is both real and potent, able to perfect matter and create a medicinal elixir beyond comprehension. Valentine swears that the process is not as others have described, with often vague references to "special" salt and sulfur, but is far easier and much less expensive than claimed in prior works.

Twelve Keys of Basil Valentine is one of the most important alchemical works available to modern students of Alchemy and early Chemistry. First published in Ein kurtz summarischer Tractat, von dem grossen Stein der Uralten... (Eisleben, 1599) without illustrations, it achieved wider distribution as part of the Tripus Aureus (Golden Tripod) compendium edited by Michael Maier and published at Frankfurt in 1618 by Lucas Jennis. Maier's illustrated edition of the work is by far the most influential. The emblematic engravings drew upon the allegorical descriptive imagery of the text and added coherence to the symbolism.

The Alchemy of Light

Geometry and Optics in Late Renaissance Alchemical Illustration

This re-examination of alchemical engravings of the late Renaissance uses an innovative semiotic method in analysing their geometrical and optical rhetorical devices. The images are contextualised within contemporary metaphysics, specifically, the discourse of light, and in Protestant reformism.

Praise for From Alchemy to Chemistry in Picture and Story "The timeline from alchemy to chemistry contains some of the most mystifying ideas and images that humans have ever devised. Arthur Greenberg shows us this wonderful world in a unique and highly readable book." —Dr. John Emsley, author of The Elements of Murder: A History of Poison "Art Greenberg takes us, through text and lovingly selected images, on a 'magical mystery tour' of the chemical universe. No matter what page you open, there is a chemical story worth telling." —Dr. Roald Hoffmann, Nobel Laureate and coauthor of Chemistry Imagined "Chemistry has perhaps the most intricate, most fascinating, and certainly most romantic history of all the sciences. Arthur Greenberg's essays-delightful, learned, quirky, highly personal, and richly illustrated with contemporary drawings (many of great rarity and beauty)-provide a kaleidoscope of intellectual landscapes, bringing the experiments, the ideas, and the human figures of chemistry's past intensely alive." —Dr. Oliver Sacks, author of Awakenings From Alchemy to Chemistry in Picture and Story takes you on an illustrated tour of chemistry's fascinating history, from its early focus on the spiritual relationship between man and nature to some of today's most cutting-edge applications. Drawing from rare publications and artwork that span over five centuries, the book contains nearly 200 essays and over 350 illustrations-including 24 in full color-that tell the engaging story of the development of this fundamental science and its connection with human history. Join Arthur Greenberg as he combines the "best of the best" from his previous works (as well as several new essays) to paint a colorful picture of chemistry's remarkable origins!

Corso ist Bücherjäger und er erhält zwei neue Aufträge: ein Originalmanuskript von Alexandre Dumas überprüfen und die letzten Exemplare eines Buches ausfindig machen, von dem viele glauben, der Teufel selbst habe es geschrieben. Er ist der Beste, und dazu gehört, sich nicht beeindrucken zu lassen. Doch kurze Zeit später wird Corso beinahe von einem Gerüst erschlagen, dann fast von einem Auto erfasst, und an der Straßenecke steht dieser Mann mit der Narbe im Gesicht, als sei er einem Abenteuerroman entstiegen. Corso ahnt, diese Aufträge kosten ihn vielleicht mehr als seine Selbstsicherheit ... Das Zeugnis einer gefährlichen Leidenschaft. Der Weltbestseller über den Wahnsinn, den es bedeutet, zu lesen. Das Abenteuer rund um ein teuflisches Geheimnis. In seinem berühmten Klassiker »Der Club Dumas« erzählt Arturo Pérez-Reverte von einem Bücherjäger auf der Jagd – rasant und atmosphärisch.
