Digitised: John Taylor's book (1635) about Thomas Par, who allegedly died in 1635 at the age of 152 'and odd months'.

Thought this might be of interest to some even if not strictly alchemical.

The Wikipedia entry on "Old Tom Parr":

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Old_Tom_Parr

reports that his diet was "subrancid cheese and milk in every form, coarse and hard bread and small drink, generally sour whey.”
