NICHOLAS BARNAUD DELPHINAS THE BOOK OF LAMBSPRING ALCHEMY

This is a well known work on alchemy which was first published by Nicholas Barnaud in 1599.
It consisted of a series of 15 verses outlining the alchemical process.
It was later issued by Lucas Jennis as part of Dyas chymica tripartita, 1625, and this was illustrated with a series of 15 engravings, together with a symbolic coat-of-arms and a frontispiece.
Some of it is in the form of images, others as poetry or wildly metaphorical prose.

Some of it is in the form of images, others as poetry or wildly metaphorical prose.
