I have been asked a question by a contact.
 
The Mirror of Alchemy, in seven chapters, is a "pseudo" Roger Bacon
text, the earliest manuscripts of which are 15th century. But there
is another  text with the same title, which was included  in the 
Collectanea Chymica of William Cooper  (London, 1684). This text is
absolutely different from the first version.
 
Where can one find the Latin version of the text which was translated
and published in Cooper's collection?

Is this it, in the Complutense collection?

I will try and find time to look at the different versions of the Bacon Mirror, when I am next in the University Library, possibly later this week.
