Search 200,000 digitized images of photographs, illuminated manuscripts, maps, works of art, and books from the Beinecke's collections.
There are several scans of alchemical Mss from the Mellon collection.

Thanks for this link!

Interesting 'alchemical music' material among other things...

See:

http://beinecke.library.yale.edu/dl_crosscollex/brbldl/oneITEM.asp?pid=2037172&iid=1131943&srchtype=ITEM

"An early example of alchemical music, the Antiphona, by Johannes de Teschen, written in Hufnagelschrift."

Regarding Johannes de Teschen/Johannes Tecenensis/Johann von Teschen:

1. He is listed in Adam's database under Johannes Tecenensis.

2. MS Ashburnham 1166 (c. 1475) contains his 'Miscellanea alchemica'.

3. The Newberry Consort include some of his music in their programs:

While searching for something else I came across this lovely page, which has a picture of the Beinecke among other things:

Flickr also has a libraries section:

http://www.flickr.com/groups/librariesandlibrarians/pool/

Search box is at the top-right of that page. More photos of the Strahov (and many other libraries) will be found there.

See, for example, the fascinating Reading Wheel (below) - very useful.
