Description

Fables, folklore, and fantasy—this compendium of all things alchemical  and mystical gathers centuries of esoteric mythology in the form of  writings, drawings, paintings, and prints. From early Christian mystics  to the illustrations of William Blake and the Romantics, this collection  spans science, philosophy, and otherworldly mystery over the ages.   Even for those with no knowledge of the fascinating history of alchemy,  this book is a delight to explore. Each richly illustrated chapter  begins with an introduction and quotes from alchemists by specialist  Alexander Rob. The roots of surrealism and many other more recent  artistic movements can be found in this treasure trove. 

 Part of the Bibliotheca Universalis series.
