That reminds me - has anyone done a decent dismantling of Jung's views on alchemy? 

I've got Principe and Newman's essay in "Secrets of Nature", but would have thought someone else might have had a go somewhere else.

If you can read Spanish, Guerrero has:

I am hoping to translate this into English for Adam's paperback series but the author seems to be still working on an updated version.

Do you think this is a continuing project, as the text talks about "over two hundred early printed books on alchemy", but this url only has 97.

Yes, there's a 'latest additions' page so there's lots more to come I'm sure:

There is an interesting critique of Principe and Newman's perspective from a humanities point of view, in

thank you for that - but perhaps this link works better?:

http://www.archive.org/stream/AlkimiaOperativaAndAlkimiaSpeculativa.SomeModernControversiesOnThe/FlorinGeorgeCalian-AlkimiaOperativaAndAlkimiaSpeculativa.SomeModernControversiesOnTheHistoriographyOfAlchemy_djvu.txt

The only other thing is it's probably in copyright, so I don't quite know whether archive.org should have it available. 

 

It appears to be available courtesy of the author here:

A reply from

"Thank you for your interest in the alchemy collection. The digitization of these materials is being realized by the ETH-Bibliothek in cooperation with the Foundation of the Works of C.G.Jung. It is a work in progress, as the “new entries” on http://www.e-rara.ch/alch/nav/history show. An estimated total of 300 titles will be reached in Summer 2012"
