Many people interested in alchemy look first to online sites and perhaps next to recently published books on the Art. Both provide extensive and valuable information.
However, there exists no substitute for reading the words of famous alchemists themselves such as Thoth, Sendivogius Paracelsus, Flamel, Dee, Ripley and others. Even if these writings from other times and cultures seem difficult to understand, only they can provide the necessary context to read and evaluate more modern writings.
Several web sites contain links to a fascinating array of texts that you will see referenced in online articles as well as books about alchemy. Here are three of my favorites and I encourage you to sample the ones that you find interesting.
Flamel College’s Library, Adam McLean’s list of Alchemy Texts, and Dennis Hauck’s list of Original Alchemy Texts. After selecting the link to Hauck’s list, you’ll need to scroll down past other great resources until you see the links to the Texts.
In future blog posts, I’ll reveal a few things about my favorite texts.
