Lucerna Salis Philosophorum 1658

The full title translates to – The Lamp of Salt of the Philosophers: That is, a Bare Outline of the Desired Principle of the Third Mineral of the Sendivogians, or Pontic Salt, Which is the Subject of all Wonder and the Only Academy of the Ancient Sages

The pages within cite the name of Paracelsus, who is arguably one of the most important figures of the Alchemical, and medical world to have lived in the German Renaissance, and his writings are still relevant to those initiated in the Hermetic arts today.

This rare book has puzzled scholars for many centuries as to the real identity of the author.

Within the pages it is credited to. “Filio Sendivogi”, which translates to “Son of Sendivogius” referring to the very famous Polish Alchemist Michael Sendivogius.

When researching this book, you will find that many bibliographers give the credit to Johann Harprecht of Tubinge, and the others to losaphat Fridericus Heutnorton (which you find written within the text).

This is widely considered a pseudonym for Johann Harprecht. Some have even rumored that Johann Harprecht was the son in law of Michael Sendivogius.

This small softcover book is a very important work that has been cited by many of the most important Alchemists throughout the past 350 years.

It includes a beautiful custom made clam shell case and is available for purchase.
