5.0 out of 5 stars A good introduction to alchemy., October 2, 2001
By 
This review is from: The Secret Art of Alchemy (Paperback)
This book is a collection of alchemical art, with 193 illustrations and 33 of them are in colour. Stanislas Klossowski de Rola provides a good and clear introduction on alchemy with a short commentary on each illustration. Also included is the alchemical poem, The Vision of Sir George Ripley, with an exposition on its contents by AEyrenaeus Philalethes. A must have.

This review is from: The Secret Art of Alchemy (Paperback)
_The Secret Art of Alchemy_ contains images I have never seen reproduced in other books, including Jung's heavily illustrated _Psychology and Alchemy_. I highly recommend this book. One can derive great pleasure just from flipping through the color plates, even if he or she is not looking to unlock Hermetic secrets. Grab one while you can.

Great book with many alchemical pictures. I never get tired of turning the pages and soaking up all the symbolism infused into the art.

4.0 out of 5 stars mostly pictures...., June 6, 2000
This review is from: The Secret Art of Alchemy (Paperback)
....from ancient alchemical treatises, though high-quality pictures. Could have wished for a longer Intro because the author crafted it with care and comprehension.

The introduction to this book was excellent! It is a shame he had to end it so quickly by introducing colorful alchemical pictures...
