Hello, does anyone have a pdf of The Summa Perfectionis of Pseudo-Geber by William R. Newman?
I would be happy to trade for it, I have quite a few treasures.

This is not e-Bay. Post an introduction and participate in the forum. If you are only into book trading then this is not the right place. Also if you participate and put in an effort of giving, before even asking, then maybe things will come your way for free.

:cool:

If anyone has PDF books they want to publicly share here on this forum (with no copyright issues if possible :)), I can host them on one of my sites, so anyone interested can download them directly from there.

If a book is rare/expensive, we can pool resources like we did before and share the costs.

But if there are old books that people already have in PDF format, I don't see a need to make it a "trade" when everyone here can benefit.

Give and ye shall receive :)

My apologies for being over zealous. Didnt mean to break protocol. Will be more conscious of it.

This text is tricky as there are several pdf's of pseudo-geber online but this specific version is basically THE version and its going for $2500 on amazon.

One of my big interests is time in alchemy, using time as part of the alchemical process and from what I understand from other texts, this version of the book gets into that as opposed to the pdf's already online, that don't mention time at all.

Like wise, if anyone knows of any other texts that talk about time being an actual part of the alchemical process, not just, do in a short time what nature does in a long time, I would be very interested in hearing about them.
