The Alchemy web site on

The King's Library, Copenhagen

This is a list of 183 hermetic manuscripts in the King's Library, Copenhagen. This was compiled by scanning through the 19th century handwritten catalogue, which I had access to in a microfilm resource. The descriptions are inadequate in places but do give us a sense of the importance of this much neglected hermetic collection. There are a number of items in English. I would welcome any further information on items from this collection - Adam McLean.
