Reproduction, source unknown, circa 1975. Two large volumes of 19th century typescript bound in comb; text is all readable, but some sections more difficult than others due to fading of the letters; VERY GOOD. Small folio. Cover sheet cites that the alchemical poet, Conrad Eifrid, was responsible for the translation from German into Latin, but as to who was the principal behind this English translation, I have not been able to discover. This uncatalogued English translation was acquired from a private collector some years hence in the hopes that I would publish portions of it. (Item ID: 15625)
