The Alchemist's Handbook has long been considered a modern-day classic on the actual practice of alchemy since its first publication in 1960. The book still stands as a groundbreaking work presenting in clear, concise language a practical manual of working knowledge that was formerly handed down only under oath of secrecy.
The scope of alchemical work is to provide both a means to synthesise all the other sciences and the necessary training of the intellectual and spiritual faculties. 'Hermetic philosophy, with its practical arcanum,' writes Frater Albertus, 'repeats itself over and over again in the ancient axiom 'As above, so below. As below, so above.'
The Alchemist's Handbook discusses in detail:
'If you really want to learn the basic principles of practical alchemy, Frater Albertus' Alchemist's Handbook is literally is worth its weight in gold.' " from the foreword by Israel Regardie, author of The Golden Dawn: The Original Account of the Teachings, Rites, and Ceremonies of the Hermetic Order
'The teachings of Frater Albertus are part of a lineage that traces back to Rosicrucian sources and much earlier and The Alchemists Handbook is still the best introduction to that lineage. If you feel the call of Alchemy and want real information on the subject, this is definitely the book you will want to read, reread, and read again. It may just turn out to be the book that changes your life.' " From the foreword by Robert Allen Bartlett, author of Real Alchemy: A Primer of Practical Alchemy
