199.99

Author: Unknown

Language: German, Latin

Date: 15th Century

History: This cryptic 15th century manuscript claims to be the history of German alchemy. The manuscript contains 255 pages of description, receipts, and drawings of the processes of alchemy during those times. The original is held at the Dresden Library in Germany.

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, which is 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.
