Released in Celebration of the 2017 Alchemical Colloquium at Mortlake & Company, "This complete edition of the Theatrum Chemicum Britannicum goes beyond the mere reprinting of the original pages as past facsimiles have done. Using the original errata sheets provided by Ashmole, the entire text has been corrected and reset in a more readable typeface and features clear reproductions of the original engravings produced by Robert Vaughan. In addition, this edition features a more complete version of the Breviary of Natural Philosophy by Thomas Charnock by employing a complete manuscript of the text not available to Ashmole in 1652. This is the most ambitious publishing project embraced by Ouroboros Press in its years of laboring to bring source works of western esotericism to scholars and collectors alike. Over a dozen individuals and institutions worked hard to bring the book into this complete and corrected edition. This is fine esoteric book arts at its best, a volume Elias Ashmole himself would be proud of". The Complete and Corrected Edition. Vellum, Sewn Binding. New. Illus. by Robert Vaughan, John Goddard, et al. Alchemical Engravings, Ornamental Grotesques, Dragons, Trees, and Fleurons. Includes an 11 x 14 Folding Plate Titled George Ripley's Wheel.
