Description:

(ID 144651902)
This is a well known work on alchemy which was first published by Nicholas Barnaud in 1599.
It consisted of a series of 15 verses outlining the alchemical process.
It was later issued by Lucas Jennis as part of Dyas chymica tripartita, 1625, and this was illustrated with a series of 15 engravings, together with a symbolic coat-of-arms and a frontispiece.
Some of it is in the form of images, others as poetry or wildly metaphorical prose.

Alchemy is fairly well known as the attempt during the Middle Ages and Late Renaissance to turn Lead into Gold.
An enormous body of alchemical literature has survived. But within that literature is a stream in which alchemy was a metaphor for turning the human heart from Lead into Golda way to talk about Spirituality and alternate ideas about Christianity that might not set well with the religious authorities of the day.
After all, in those days they didnt exactly honour diversity being different could result in your being the guest of honour at a burning-at-the-stake!
The famous psychologist Carl Jung wrote extensively about this inner alchemical literature.
Some of it is in the form of images, others as poetry or wildly metaphorical prose.
