History/Description: This manuscript, from 1790 Italy, was written by Federico Gualdi and consists of his notes on alchemy. There are two diverse cryptic alchemies. They are written by one copyist, and linked by two series of alchemical emblems. The first text, Philosophia hermetica, in Italian verse, is linked to Federico  Gualdi. The second text, Compendiolum de praeparatione auri potabilis veri, is attributed to Marcus ugenius Bonacina.

Reproduction Details: The hardcover books are made with two pieces of real wood on the inside. The leather is a 4 oz cowhide, from a small supplier in New York state. The Glue we use to attach the leather to the wood is made at our facility, and is a period correct wheat glue. Along the spine, we use a modern perfect binding, with modern glue, to make the binding last longer. We also add three layers of mull cloth to the outside of the perfect binding, drying in between each layer, a traditional way to make the binding stiff, strong, and resilient.

Note: All of our facsimiles are made to order. Please allow 4-6 weeks for notification of shipment.
