Hi. Can anyone tell me if this book exists and if so where I can find it?

Sendivogius - A New Chemical Light III - A Treatise on Salt

Thanx.
I'm not sure if there is a third part, but the second part concerning sulphur is available...it can be found on the alchemy website. Here you go (http://www.alchemywebsite.com/newchem3.html) though I'm sure you probably already found this. There is no treatise "concerning" salt per title within Sendivogius's works that I'm aware of. Obviously salt is mentioned in the lower portion under "concerning the Three principles of all things" but you won't find it if you're looking for that exact title, I'm afraid it doesn't exist to my knowledge.
Thank you Philiosehea. Yeah I don't think there is such a thing...... I think I was actually looking for Solinus Saltztal's "Fountain of Philosophical Salt" & "A Recapitulation" by Orthelius of Sendivigius. and ive got it.......

Thanks anyway mate!

There is a German language treatise on Central Salt in Johann Joachim Becher's "Chymischen Gluckshafen", 1632, pages 231-239. It is entitled "Processus D. Michaelis Sendivogii Super Centrum Universi Feu Sal Central".

I believe that there is an English translation in Zbigniew Szydlo's book "Water Which Does Not Wet Hands: The Alchemy of Michael Sendivogius" (1994). The book is out of print.
