THE ALCHEMIST IN LIFE, LITERATURE AND ART The Alchemist is first considered realistically in relation to his working background of alchemy, with its intriguing theories and conceptions, its vast literature, and its wealth of cryptic expression and pictorial symbolism. The survey then passes from the living model to a contemplation of various idealistic presentations of the alchemist, in literature and also in pictorial art. 100pp.

SECRET TRADITION IN ALCHEMY(1926)    "There has grown up in mystical circles, more especially of recent years, and there has been reflected thence among persons outside the circles...a feeling that Alchemy was in reality a spiritual experiment, connoting spiritual attainments, "veilled in allegory and illustrated by symbols", and neither a dark groping in mere physics nor a successful attempt to transmute metals, literally understood.  Those who have met with alchemical texts seem to find such a notion confirmed by the deep religious fervour displayed in many and the suggestion there and here of Spiritual Mysteries which are analogous to the Hermetic Work; some of the latter have been accepted as seemingly accidental, but really purposed hints about the nature of the hidden subject."  xxii + 415pp.
