This book is heavy! It is a valuable resource book for everyone interested in medieval graphic, art, symbols. But those who look for a simple introduction to alchemy and mysticism should search somewhere else: The texts and excerpts are a bit confusing and not very structured. But still entertaining. ( )

Very detailed account of the ideas and meanings surrounding alchemy and mysticism from the Hermetic Museum. This book gives detailed history of the iconography used in alchemy and mysticism and their relation to the history and science. ( )

Beautiful illustrations and is a very interesting book. However, it's confusing to read. ( )

There's a larger version of this book I remember reading, but this particularly volume trades off some detail in the individual drawing for a far more portable and convenient size. Lots of beautiful imagery and a little bit of history as well.

Suprise, this inexpensive and easy to find book contains a cornacopia of alchemical and mystical diagrams from obscure texts. The author respects the material and only gives teases to their decipherment. For the money this is a darn good little book. ( )
