    I saw that, but he never explained why he was freely giving away such a treasure. It's a book that belongs on everyone's shelves.

    Tom and I had initially agreed to give it away to RAMS (and everybody else) after a grace period to recover some compensation for our efforts. Now the time had come. Thank you all for the appreciation, duly noted

    Just an idea...

    Why not set up a donation option (on Tom's site or anywhere else for that matter), so those who didn't purchase the printed books but are enjoying the free PDF copies can still express their appreciation (if so inclined) for the hard work that went into it?

    That's most generous. I purchased both your books and have enjoyed them immensely. I'm currently working on having the translation of a related third in that series checked, Recreations Hermetiques.

    There is in fact a donation option with paypal and bitcoin buttons on Toms site. He has done immeasurable more work than I so its OK to use his site for this purpose.

    I was communicating with Sam very recently, and he has more or less lost interest in alchemy and is pursuing other interests. Perhaps it's best to make a direct inquiry to Tom.

    I was just making an observation.

    The books are now available from Lulu at reasonable prices.

    That's fair enough, I guess.

    I totally agree that the Récréations/Scholia refer to clay as the matter. The several references leave no doubt.

    It's odd how similar they are (obviously the later versions were based on the earlier versions), yet they differ so significantly on the matter used.

    Why are you so sure? It is written in the book, yes. But in a way that it could also be a deckname.
    In the scholium however it is written:

    3rd

    Water fermented, putrefied and desiccated forms a silt that can be called Dry Water.

    4th
    This Silt, this Dry Water, is the clay from which the colossus of the world was formed.

    To me this sounds like the clay being some kind of dry gur, that according with the first book needs to be mixed with an iron compound and something that's available everywhere man/woman can go.

    Don't you think?
