The Rosie Crucian Secrets. Their Excellent Method of making Medicines of Metals also Their Lawes and Mysteries. The first publication of an alchemical work entitled The Rosie Crucian Secrets, No. 6485 of the Harleian manuscripts, now housed in the British Library. In the past the book had been ascribed to John Dee, an ascription which was convincingly rebutted by A. E. Waite. In a prefatory essay, the editor of the current volume, E. J. Langford Garstin, argues that it was actually Waite who was in error, and that the original ascription of the work to Dee was correct, but most most modern scholars are convinced that the attribution is spurious. ISBN: 0-85030-441-5. Just a hint of shelf wear, light pencilled date on inside cover, otherwise a bright Near fine copy.
