Yes, I did, thanks. But now a better record as I did not have the page numbers.

Do you have these two?

The Cosmic Cycle and the Black Madonna - Jaq White

http://books.google.com/books?id=LDTPvbXLxgQC&pg=PA72&lpg=PA72&dq=%22examines+the+alchemical%22&source=bl&ots=_O41-XZygw&sig=akF2vcLPZn5kyNXFF67PFKaIKOM&hl=en&ei=ubbyS-i4MseTsQbZ9MX6Cw&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=3&ved=0CBwQ6AEwAjgK#v=onepage&q=%22examines%20the%20alchemical%22&f=false

and

Hawkins, Ann Rachelle. "Order, Community, and Astarte: Revising Shakespeare in Byron's Manfred." Ph.D. diss., U of Kentucky, 1997, DAI, 58-9 (1998): 3537.

Places Manfred not "in a biographical context, but in the intertextual contexts the poem's internal allusions create." Explores Manfred's relationship to Renaissance forebears: examines the alchemical basis of Byron's use of the magus, spirit realms, and destinies, particularly Shakespeare's Macbeth and The Tempest; explores the "interplay between Renaissance politics of hierarchy and Romantic dramas of the individual"; discusses the relationship between Manfred's soliloquies and Hamlet's; and discusses the importance of Astarte as a reflection of "the relationship between the male-self and the female-other in the search for peace or reconciliation."

Also, do you use ABIM? Quite a lot of alchemical stuff in there:

Thanks, Paul

White was new. Useful that the whole article is on Google books - although I would hate to have to type it in.

Knew about Hawkins

Had ABIM in my bookmarks, but had not yet searched it.

I'm realising such a bibliography would be useful for me, currently tracing texts and articles through Thorndikes history of magic and science, or via old papers in Ambix. 

Regarding internet articles, I think all you can sensibly do is give the article title and author, and perhaps the first line.  These would allow people in the future to search for the title and author or first sentence as a coherent whole, and increase the chance that even though it has been copied, re-formatted, moved 3 times, stored on memory stick then uploaded again, that people will be able to find it and confirm that it is probably the original article.

I am very pleased to say that I now have a contract with a publisher. The publisher is AMS Press (http://www.amspressinc.com/), who have published quite a few relevant reprints as well as original works, e.g. Stan Linden'd Mystical metal of gold, as well as books by Lyndy Abraham, Michael Walton, etc.

Publication is going to be a while yet (probably 2-3 years), as I have quite a bit more work to do in completing the book, and the production process will take some time. It currently consists of around 16,000 entries and I anticipate there will be more than 20,000 entries. It is arranged by a more sophisticated classification scheme than the first edition, with a comprehensive index.

I will probably need to pester the group with queries in the next few months. I have a number of issues that I need to clarify.

In the meantime, I would be very pleased to receive any information about any more unusual books (e.g small, non-commercial and/or occult presses) or articles (unusual journals or web sites where one would not expect an article on alchemy). All help will be fully acknowledged.

Alan


I'm sure the answer's yes, but do you have the Percy Anecdotes listed, Vol. VI. page 40?

Do you have a note of the two essays on Alchemy by Zadkiel (John Palmer) in Raphael's Familiar Astrology?

1832 edition downloadable here, unfortunately with some poorly reproduced pages:

http://books.google.com/books?id=eIt9CpkHlSQC&printsec=frontcover&source=gbs_v2_summary_r&cad=0#v=onepage&q&f=false

See pages 490-499 and 632-641.

Joscelyn Godwin, in his 'Theosophical Enlightenment', calls these essays 'remarkable'.

Hi Paul.

Apologies for the delay in responding. Have been doing my economic duty and supporting the Greek economy!!

I did have a note of the title only in my 1st edition but I had not seen the reference, so your link is most helpful.

I also had a reference to what is probably a reprint of the articles in Lucifer 15 Jul 1893, which I had seen (probably at the Harry Price Library)

Hi Paul,

Just a slight correction to the Zadkiel references.

1. There are 2 versions on the Internet Archive:
The 1832 version (which is the same rather poor scan as Google books) is at
http://www.archive.org/details/familiarastrolo00smitgoog

but there is a better version of the 1841 edition at
http://www.archive.org/details/familiarastrolo00raphgoog

Much more readable, and (I suspect) not much different to 1832

2. Part 2 of the Zadkiel article seems to finish at page 638. It is signed off at the bottom "Your well-wisher Zadkiel"

pp. 639-641 are some extracts from Ripley, Geber, Lully,
