Mr. Riviere has provided ample factual information in this book to justify his reasoning and claim that Jules Viole is actually the person who was known as Fulcanelli.

I think there can be no further doubt as to who he was. There are lots of other theories as to who he was, but none of them can claim the authenticity that the author amply elucidates here. While these other theorists try desperately to stretch the facts and often do their best to create a scenario which could fit those facts, they really do fall flat on their faces.

This reads like a good detective story, except that it is not fiction!

Frank Zappa had a guitar solo "But who was Fulcanelli?" which more often than not had listeners searching around to see who Fulcanelli was. From there they would find out that Fulcanelli was the pseudonym of a Parisian alchemist but the true identity was uncertain, such was the double meaning of Zappa's title.

There has been countless speculation in regard to the true identity of this enigmatic and well versed alchemist. Patrick Riviere, who can claim a direct lineage to Fulcanelli through his adeptship to Eugene Canseliet has spent many years trawling through Parisian libraries, archives and papers to convincingly reveal some light on the subject of the "little vulcan's"

life.

It's an excellent resource which also gives a good outline of the early 20th century Parisian scientific and alchemic community and their networking.

With his paramount research in alchemy and his link to a great adept Fulcanelli himself, the author Patrick Riviere have written an intriguing work entitled "Fulcanelli: His True Identity Revealed." The respectable author, Riviere, was a student of Eugene Canseliet, who was a disciple of Fulcanelli himself. Thus, Riviere is a proper author who is able to solve such a mystery that surrounded the great alchemist of 20th century.

"Fulcanelli" is composed of 203 pages, as divided into eleven chapters, with additions of an introduction and an appendix. The first three chapters dealt with the alchemy in the 20th century and discussion of Fulcanelli's two works, "Mystery of the Cathedrals" and "Dwellings of the Philosophers." The fourth chapter focused on the encounter between Fulcanelli and Eugene Canseliet, and the next few chapters deal with the debates and evidences on the questionable identity of Fulcanelli. Then, Riviere brings his point home the real individual, by revealing the strong evidence, who became the famed Fulcanelli.

There is a common sense where one would need to read the history of a subject before studying that certain subject. In the case of Fulcanelli where his works, "Mystery of the Cathedrals" and "Dwellings of the Philosophers," are concerned, Riviere's "Fulcanelli" will be one of the most useful books for any sincere seeker or just curious reader.

This book is strongly recommended.

Anyone with even a basic understanding or interest of alchemy will enjoy this book, as is a prominent name in the field of alchemists. Patrick Riviere's research and close connections to Funcanelli, through Fucanelli's only student Eugene Canseliet, lends credence to his conclusions and also puts to bed all those who wish to lead us astray in determining who Fucanelli really was or is.
