York Beach, ME: Samuel Weiser, Inc., 1981. Facsimile reprint of 1894 edition. Hardcover. Large octavo. 154pp + 20pp. Original gilt decorated blue cloth. A reprint of this collection of alchemical 'processes' (experiments), apparently edited and arranged by A. E. Waite for the alchemical enthusiast Hon. Stafford-Jerningham (later Lord Stafford). Gilbert notes that the original 1894 edition was privately published for Stafford, and though the print-run is unknown, it was evidently tiny, as even the esteemed bibliographer had not seen a copy in its original binding. Page edges very lightly foxed, top edge darkened, some light spot fading to cloth and a light horizontal dye fault in cloth on front board (both - as common) - Else a tight, bright & unmarked VG+. No dust jacket - as issued. Item #65960
