"The Science Of Alchymy - Spiritual and Material" by Dr. W.W. Westcott (Sapere Aude)

In this guideline Sapere Aude defines alchemy in very clear terms. Sapere Aude is a pseudonym of W.Westcott, one of the founders of the Golden Dawn. The early Golden Dawn had a distinct alchemical curriculum, reminiscent of the Gold und Rozenkreuz. Westcott proposes that Alchemy has two aspects: the simply material, and the religious. The dogma that Alchemy was only a form of chemistry, is untenable by anyone who has read the works of its chief professors. The doctrine that Alchemy was religion only, and that its chemical references were all blinds, is equally untenable in the face of history. This book is as much true today as it was at the time of its original publication in 1893.

"The Book of Images without Words (Mutus Liber)" by Pierre Dujols de Valois (Magaphon)

The Mutus Liber was first published in 1677, by an author called Altus. The book contained only images, no words, and desribed a certain path to the Philosopher's Stone. Magaphon (a pseudonym for Pierre Dujols de Valois) wrote a short commentary to the emblems. He was looked upon by many of the Parisian occultists of his time as the expert-alchemist, and some sources state he was in close contact with Fulcanelli.
A rough translation of Magaphon's commentary was done by Kjell Hellesoe in 1985, but this translation leaves much to be desired. Inner Garden has redone the translation, and included high quality reproductions of the emblems.

"Basilius Valentinus and his Tinctures from Antimony" by Dr. D.A.Schein

This book began as a doctoral thesis of Dr. Schein with the University of Munich, and was originally published in German in 1977. It reproduces the procedures set out in the famous alchemical manuscript "The Triumphal Chariot of Antimony", by basil Valentine. Dr. Schein proves that modern day alchemists should not shun the growing body of knowledge available since days of old, while, on the other hand, science based investigations of alchemical text would do good not to ignore the alchemists viewpoint as outdated and irrelevant. Ideally, interest in Alchemy will neither remain in the past nor disregard the past, but will help translate alchemical concepts and results into languages used today.

"Nature Uncovered" by The Unknown Knight

This rare French work by an anonymous knight contains an explanation of the Wet Path to the Stone and a clear and explicate distinction between the medicinal and transmutational Stone. At its time of appearance in 1669, this book was immediately recognised for its value. Minister Paulmy d’Argenson was assigned to uncover the true name of this unknown knight. Yet however wide and far reaching the minister’s intelligence organisation was, the nameless master remained invisible. We present here the earliest edition of this fascinating mss – the one also found in Fulcanelli’s library.

"Travels in Kaleidoscope" by I. Hillel-Erlanger

This little dadaist style book undeniably reveals the Great Work. It is a must for all those involled in some form of Inner Work or practical Qabalah - the journeymen who seek the uncharted realms, the maze with its own order and images in kaleidoscope. The book was originally published in French, in the autumn of 1919. Shortly after publication in Paris, all copies of the book were confiscated and pulped. A few copies were overseen. Translated into English for the first time, it is now offered through Inner Garden Press. Enjoy this poetic little novel.

"Alchemy and its Mute Book" by E. Canseliet

In the year of foundation in 2010, we published Br. Magaphon’s commentary on the Mutus Liber – the Book Without Words. This year we offer commentary on the Mutus Liber from Magaphon’s friend and associate: Eugène Canseliet. Canseliet had a most pivotal role in the transmission of the alchemical tradition in Europe in the 20th century. Canseliet may not quite touch upon the innermost secrets of the book, as becomes obvious from the preface of Br. Exoslius, yet this book still offers a most formidable insight in the Visual Language of the Alchemists of old.
