bless!! awesome blog
A short piece form the flyer put out my mentor from the Philosophical Research Society
Library Exhibit Oct.12 through Dec. 26, 1986
Alchemical Books And Manuscripts
Among the manuscripts displayed is the great
scroll of George Ripley which is over twenty
in length with magnificent illustrations of
alchemical symbols and formulas. Other manuscripts
include selections from the Bacstrom collection,
a volume formerly from the library of Count Cagliostro,
and the triangular manuscript on vellum by the
mysterious Comte De St. Gremain.
Among the printed works is the massive
Manget folio published in the seventeenth century
reprinting hundreds of rare alchemical tracts.
The collected writings of Paracelsus, and the philosophical
works on transmutation attributed to Hermes Trismegistus
are also shown. The Rosicrucians, who made much of alchemical
terminology, are represented by their first manifestoes in Latin,
German and English, along with numerous examples of their symbolism.
When Mr. Hall was still giving lectures at the Philosophical Research Society, every year the library would
display part of his vast collection of both Eastern and Western esoteric memorabilia...the library is still
open to the public and very much alive...I was able to attend some of these showings from the late 70's through the 90's
