The Pneumo-Cosmic Manuscript. MS Ferguson 115 in Glasgow University Library; ( Magnum Opus Hermetic Sourceworks series )

Glasgow, Scotland: Magnum Opus Hermetic Sourceworks, 2005. Limited edition. Hardcover. Octavo. (vi), 8pp.+ lii [52] colour plates. Hand bound in brown faux-leather, b&w illustrations, patterned coloured endpapers. Edition limited to 125 numbered copies - and is thus more limited than most titles in this series, presumably due to the high cost of the colour printing. Signed by Adam McLean. Magnum Opus Hermetic Sourceworks series No. 30. "This remarkable late 18th century manuscript in the Ferguson collection is an enigmatic and alluring work. It has no text but consists of a series of 52 circular coloured drawings. These appear to depict the cosmos emerging out of chaos. Many of the images show interior worlds, and a number have little animal and human forms within them, even winged angel forms and depictions of Mercurius. A work like this can probably never be understood. Instead it should be viewed as an alchemical artwork and appreciated for the way it depicts its message. It is one of the treasures of later alchemy. Its origins are as mysterious as its subject matter." Appears unused, unread - thus a bright Fine copy. Item #63300
