If you are looking to learn about about alchemy, not just

In the mid 90's the publication of John's first book the "Minor Opus a.k.a John Reid's Course on Practical Alchemy" aroused considerable interest. It has been hailed as an outstanding work on plant alchemy. Thousands of people from around the world have cut their alchemical teeth on this seminal text, and hundreds of websites have based a large part of their alchemical content around it. It is in fact cited on Wikipedia as a detailed online course in Plant Alchemy. Though the text to the second edition of the Minor Opus can be found on many websites, the site of Spayria.com is the only that will have the third edition material. You can find the "Minor Opus" text here.
