"A North African alchemical manual from the early nineteenth century, presenting earthly substances and their chemical operations according to the arrangement of alRāzī’s ninth-century treatise Sirr al-asrār. Turning easily from arsenic to the philosopher’s stone, the present copy is an excellent example of the enduring appeal of al-kīmiyā’. The treatise itself is likely an original compilation."

At Quaritch. Item 2 in the Olympia catalogue:
