Alchemy & Mysticism – The Public Domain ReviewDespite this, Plague? The excerpts from Martin's sources offer tantalising glimpses for those interested in the h u m a n dimension of the experience of disease in the Renaissance. Alchemy has been described variously as a forerunner of c physics and metaphysics, as a philosophy which incorporates elements of mysticism, symbolism and psychology, and as a source of ideas which shaped the world views of many writers, artists and musicians. All those facets of alchemy are present in this book which consists of a huge number of illustrations with commentary and quotations from many sources, ranging from the eighth century B. For many years author and painter Alexander Roob has assembled a vast archive of pictures, illustrations and texts on and connected with William Blake, and out of this collection came this book. The beautiful reproductions are of excellent quality, many in colour, from various texts on alchemy or mysticism as well as Short Notices other sources, with illustrations from Hildegard of Bingen's visions right up to the twentieth century, including a curious photograph of two modern day alchemists collecting dew.
