Does somebody know whether the following text (or similar editions) attributed to Pseudo Lull had ever been translated into English or German partly or completely in ancient or modern times ?

Testamentum Raymundi Lulli Doctissimi Et Celeberrimi Philosophi, Duobus Libris Universam Artem Chymicam Complectens

There are some early translations (16th and 17th centuries) in the British Library.

The 'Codicil' part of the 'Testamentum' also exists in  an English translation in a Sibley manuscript here in Glasgow.

Thanks Paul. Of course, she's the most informed scholar dealing with the corpus.

Now I remember. At least the 'Codicil' as an attachment of the Testament in its German translation should be contained in  Friedrich Joseph Wilhelm Schröders Neue Sammlung von einigen alten und sehr rar gewordenen Philosophisch und Alchymistischen Schriften, Frankfurt und Leipzig 1769.

Just for the record, there is also a French translation by Hans van Kasteel, with a preface by Didier Kahn:
