Robert has created a work for the ages in this book -- a true classic. Filled with many useful examples and explanations, I rank this book up there with Manfred Junius and Frater Albertus' work on alchemy. The book is a must for everyone's alchemical library. It holds a wealth of information for the novice and some obscure gems for the advanced worker in the Arts.
