It seems an important book. It would be nice to have it and learn from its study.
What I could find online is this, on scribd: http://www.scribd.com/doc/47671238/Alkymiens-Mysterier which needs someone to have a subscription in order to download.

I've just uploaded the whole book (in English) to a free file transfer service, so it will only be available for download for a week.

So, anyone who wants it can download it HERE (http://we.tl/UFiq6cQDd1), before January 13.

If anyone misses the expiration date, just say so and I'll upload it again.

EDIT: Maybe someone can download it from the temporary link above, and then upload it to a more 'permanent' location.

"Alkymiens Mysterier" (Mysteries of Alchemy), by Merelle. There seems to be an online free version in spanish:
http://www.museumaconicoparanaense.com/mmpraiz/Biblioteca/1781_Merelle%20-%20Alkymiens%20Mysterier.pdf

I couldn't locate a free english version but found one on scribd: http://www.scribd.com/doc/47671238/Alkymiens-Mysterier (you can only see the index)

And an half finished attempt to translate it in english:

The original book is said to be written in Danish.

This is a very interesting little book.
Especially the part about the purple silver salts and sea shells.

Thanks for sharing! :)

The book is free. The translation into English was carried out by the Dane Olè Jensen. The rearrangement, insertion of the images, editing and conversion into a pdf-document of the book was done by me in 2003.

Thank you greatly, Weidenfeld!

This may be the best line I've read so far:


Merelle insist that if one works seriously with Alchemy, the Way to the Stone will reveal itself to those who are worthy. And that the Path need not be so difficult and complicated as some might think. Those of modest means can play along here if they Truly desire so

I also love the fact that the author is reportedly a woman.

I finally finished the English edition I was working on with Olè Jensen. Hope you all enjoy it:

Thank you very much for giving this.

It does have the feel of someone who really knows what they are talking about. It has many different threads which I have come across in different places, brought together here in one place.

Just thought I would give this thread a bump as it represents my train of thought, which came to me via synchronicity.

Thanks, I just read the first bit and it looks interesting. I like the author, as she sounds like a humble soul and not attempting to be some grand high muckety muck obsessed with her own superiority.

There already is a thread about this book here (http://forum.alchemyforums.com/showthread.php?3852-Book-quot-Alkymiens-Mysterier-quot)

I only happen to know because I searched and read it by myself recently.

The two threads have now been merged. Thanks for pointing this out.

You are welcome. It is indeed a nice read. At least the first parts of the book. Has anyone tried (and succeeded) the mentioned dissolving of clouds in the sky by staring at them?

Agreed, the farther I got along in it the less interested I became. Will give it a good look again when I'm in a reading mood.

Not sure what you mean by "staring" at "them." I used to watch actual clouds a lot when I was studying magic, and they do seem to move and change course with enough concentration. The theories on whether it was me moving the clouds or them moving me could go on forever, determinism gets weird when you inject consciousness and reciprocity, so I don't normally share that anecdote with people.

I can say that the early chapters of the book resonated very well with me, as it's in line with what I got from my salt experiments, collecting a special salt from the air. I wonder what else is in it besides ammonium nitrate, because the qualities are slightly different. My brain is concocting a setup that I can leave at my property to collect the salt over time without the need to check it every morning. Something that will collect at night and evaporate slowly during the day. That would beat the hell out of boiling water for hours and hours so I can devote my "burner" time to other things.
