    Sorry, Green Lion and Salazius, I only posted the images and didn't have time to comment on them before I had to tend to another matter, but I have edited my post and explained where they came from.

    So I still haven't been able to come up with an complete English version of it, and neither of "The real and old way of Nature of Hermes Trismegistus", by ICH that you mentioned before GL, but I found where I can buy a copy in French. So I've struck out all the way around, .....and my mouth was so watering.

    But, on the bright side I got Rosetta Stone in French, Italian and German, so I am going to learn to speak/read all three, so then maybe I'll know six languages and hopefully I can be like that autistic savant Micheal Tennant and learn one a week. Cause it seems we soley english speaking alchemists are at a disadvantage since we can only rely on RAMS for translations, and knowing Spanish and Tagalog doesn't do me any good cause the majority of them seem to be written in these three languages.
    Peace and LVX

    Frater L.R.

    hallo,
    interesting thread.
    Regarding the compass of the wise, I have the whole english translation by leo muller in the folder "compass" of RAMS DVD. I bought my copy few weeks ago, so maybe it has been added recently, check for upgrades.

    regarding the text by I.C.H., i guess the german version to be this:
    I.C.H., Das Hermes Trimegists, Leipzig, 1782
    that I could not find on the net (not a big problem to me, since that sadly, I don't read german. should start studying it..), nor even I could manage to find a digital copy of the french or english version.
    mybe it is possible to find the french manuscript? Salazius, the pages that you kindly gave us are from the printed french version? any reference in there about the manuscript? thanks

    green lion, I'm aware of the commentary of G. Perard to hermes devoilè by Cyliani,
    http://www.france-secret.com/alchimie_art6.htm
    http://www.france-secret.com/alchimie_art7.htm
    while I could not find any reference about A.L.Gerber. any hint? thank you

    with humility

    Yes, these pages are just "facsimile" of the real manuscript, it can be found in the french pdf book of I.C.H.

    hallo salazius,
    you mean the pdf preview from the site editions de la hutte, or the whole text?
    meanwhile, for the lucky german readers, there is a transliteration of the leipzig edition here:
    http://www.levity.com/alchemy/hermes_trismegists.html
    back to searching..

    There are only few facsimile. The last 'post face' is at the end of the text. Not in the preview.

    It is here at "la Hutte" for the preview.

    I somewhere read the initials as J.C.H.

    edit: it was written in kurrent german and the I looks like a J. I compared the letters and it's supposed to be I.C.H.

    Hi Teofrast40

    I took some of the text from your link

    http://www.levity.com/alchemy/hermes_trismegists.html

    replaced some of the symbols with their respective names in German
    then ran it through Google Translator. It didn't do a great job but it is readable
    to a point.

    I have only done the chapter,"Hermes Trismegists wahrer alter Naturweg", right
    now but will do a bit more later.

    If I am wasting my time and there is already a fully translated english version please let me know.

    ... nicht mehr im Handel aufzutreiben ist. Und als Grund hierfür wird angegeben, dasz es s.z. sofort nach Erscheinen infolge dieser Aufrichtigkeit und Treue in Schilderung der Herstellung der Universaltinktur von den Rosenkreuzern aufgekauft und so aus der Welt geschafft worden sein soll.
