This is a work of many spagyrical experiments.
The first half deals mainly with plant preparations for specific diseases.
About halfway down you run into mineral works, antimony, potable gold, etc.
A valuable work. I'm surprised to find it free on the web.

Is amazing reading Sol'. Love the old english...I have never read something this old. Think I will need to do much more reading to understand it. Thanks.
P.S. The haemorrhoid remedy might be useful ;)

You're welcome.
And thanks for the pics. I'd never seen him.
