I was trying to recall the names of authors of alchemical texts who published them under pseudonyms being anagrams of their true names. I could think of three only:

  • Michael Sendivogius (Divi Leschi genus amo / Angele doce mihi jus)
  • Michael Maier (Hermes Malavici)
  • Raphael Eglinus Iconius (Nicolaus Niger Hapelius)

I am sure there were more but just cannot remember them?

Here are some:

Petri Murien - Pierre Munier [defective]
Spes una est in Agno - Ioannes Spagnetus, i.e. Jean d'Espagnet
Flas Cherubin de Corde Superne - Fredericus Conderus ab Helpen
James Hasolle - Elias Ashmole
Thomas Arfoncinus - Franciscus Hotomanus
Jeova Sanctus Unus - Isaac Newton
Altus - Jacob Sulat (signatory of the Mutus Liber)
Etteilla - Alliette

Thanks Paul! The first one seems to be more like a spelling variant -- but the remaining ones are very helpful (I wouldn't count Etteila as an alchemist, though).

I think Etteilla's 'Sept nuances de l'œuvre philosophique-hermétique' (1786) must be considered an alchemical work, though of course he was most closely associated with the Tarot.
