    Fair point. Wondering if smoozing the staff helps

    Still working on it. Some parts of our transcription have problems that will be dealt with before sending it to the publisher. Naturally, parts of the translation will be changed according to the final changes that will be made to the transcription of the French text.

The earlier books were limited edition, and thus a little more expensive. That seems to be the trend these days - to issue a limited edition version followed by a much more affordable paperback version. They both contain the very same information.

    The next important book (also heavily used by Fulcanelli) to be released is "La Clef du Cabinet Hermetique". I was hoping that it would have been published by late Spring, but because of various ongoing issues, it looks like it might take some time yet.
    I went to order a copy from amazon just now and it appears they are temporarily out of stock.

    They must be selling fast! Perhaps my publisher only has a small quantity printed at a time.

    I just heard back from the Publisher, and he said that the "temporarily out of stock" statement by Amazon is sort of a misnomer. The book is actually "print on demand", so it should be available as soon as it is printed.

    He also said that there are still copies of the limited edition available, should anyone be so inclined.

    I understand that he's also doing a podcast interview on the book this Friday with Awani, our local podcast expert :-)

    Thanks I'll be looking forward to the interview as well.

    Is this in English or in French?

    It includes both the French and the English translation.

    As an update, the transcription, translation, introduction and appendix of La Clef du Cabinet Hermetique has just been completed, and sent to the Publisher.

    The Publisher has indicated his great interest in publishing this important book, as a companion volume to "Hermetic Recreations", which was published by Rubedo Press in 2017.

    Fulcanelli derived a significant part of his approach from these two books which he references in his writings. These books provide much more detail and explanation behind the approach, which Fulcanelli often explained in an enigmatic way.

    Prior to JDP's discovery of the only known known copy of this elusive manuscript, it was assumed that it had been forever lost. At some considerable effort and cost, we were finally able to obtain a copy, and over a period of five years, we then (along with one other partner) carefully transcribed and translated it from the Middle French language.

    I will keep everyone informed of when the book will be published.
