  1. Jaroš Griemiller - Rosarium philosophorum (1578)



    As mentioned in another post, this is known as "Griemiller's Rosary". If you're like me, you are probably familiar with at least a couple of the images, although they are rarely used with any source/citation information. I think I may have happened upon the name from something McLean had posted? For awhile my best source was a pdf of a few images.. it was like a pamphlet that might be handed out at an exibhition, but lacking much ...

  4. Illustrations of Heinrich Khunrath (17th Century)

    I guess I'll post some manuscripts. This one I is something I came across recently. I'm a pretty big fan of Khunrath. In the record, Khunrath is listed as "Creator", and this doesn't seem to match anything from published works.. So I'm leaning towards this being his actual creation, in his hand, and not some else's copy. The provenance of the manuscript only makes it more interesting for me: "Lindsay family Earls of Crawford and Balcarres", but I'll get into that more another ...
