I'm afraid I get a 404 message, something isn't right.

Thanks for alerting me.

The publishers seem to have moved it around.

You can see the description at http://www.amspressinc.com/titles/62352.html

They moved the book from their series AMS Studies in Cultural history to AMS Studies in the Renaissance.

Crazy, but they would not be moved.

Thanks.
Now, as a potential purchaser, I have a question - does it list both primary and secondary texts?  Are there any particular limits in time, e.g. putting all the known medieval MS in it would be hard going, and from the contents it seems like that is unlikely.  I see it has core texts, I assume they are the basic primary ones. 

Certainly an up to date bibliography of secondary works would be very useful.

The bibliography is primarily concerned with listing English-language information - printed books, theses, articles, audiovisual media and information (web sites and web pages) from the Internet. It does not really include any records relating to individual mss except for transcriptions that have been published (as theses, books, etc.) or on the Internet (Newton or some specific ones, e.g. Ripley)> It does include references to Adam's list of mss on his web site

It starts off with Texts, i.e. primary works on alchemy and related topics from 1537 through to just recently. There are some 5184 of these out of the roughly 20K entries.

Please come back if I haven't answered your question, or if I can in any other way

THanks, that seems enough information to be getting on with.  MIssing out pre-1537 MSS and texts and suchlike is a sensible idea.  Have you any idea how much it will cost?
