I noticed that R.A.M.s have updated Volume 2 and 3 to their collection

Volume 2
http://www.ramsdigital.com/toc/compendium2.html

Volume 3
http://www.ramsdigital.com/toc/compendium3.html

but i don't feel like buying the collection all over again because of only two more documents. Can someone help me out with Volume 2 and 3?

Thanks,

T.P.

When I ordered the collection around 5-6 years ago, they mentioned an 'update' option for new releases, which means you pay much less for the updates if you already bought the collection.

I don't know if this option is still valid, and they're pretty lousy at answering emails, but I thought I'd mention it as a last resort, just in case nobody else here can help with the new releases.

Thanks for the advice, i will e-mail them right away. On the other hand a little bird told me that i should look here:

The only way to join in is to get an invitation from someone already in, so can somebody initiate me?

Just to be clear initiation in this case is only an invitation to join, they have many books there much more than any of us could possibly read. If somebody invites me i will invite you right away.

Hi TP,
it was Joshua, who opened a thread for invitation on occult.biz a few years ago, you could pm him he's a very nice guy.
I was a member, but didn't visit for years, so I've been (rightly) thrown out.
AND regarding RAMS, I must confess I've come to distrust them, as mostly badly translated and often mutilated.
I know that in many cases they're the only way to go. But I would always try taking a pick at the original, and making the effort to learn to read it in its tongue, with the help of a vocabulary and the rams version as a draft.

It's Joshua still around? I don't remember when i saw his post last time.

My way to go about RAMS is to first find books that are promising and then searching for the original. The reason behind is that Bacstrom had handwritten everything and it is often tough to read.

Hi,

New here, so forgive if this is old news but this site has a nice free online collection. Perhaps it has the missing documents you seek?

True Puffer:

I have the full "Compendium of Alchemical Processes," (mostly Glauber, Basel Valentine and a few more modern experiments), not sure if this is same or different from the "tracts" you are looking for. If anyone wants to pm me I will send it as a .pdf file

http://www.rexresearch.com/alchindx.htm has an entire alchemy section, also Adam McLean's site at www.levity.com/alchemy, to supplement the RAMS files, some duplications.
