I have today (12th August) issued a further book in the Magnum Opus series

Michael Maier's 'Cantinenae Intellectuales', translated and with an introduction by Mick Dickman. This is number 25 in the Magnum Opus series. The price is 43 UK pounds (including air mail postage) or 40 UK pounds (including surface, Europe and UK postage). Full details can be seen on

where you can purchase the book online using your credit card.

Over the past months the UK pound has been very high, especially against the dollar, however, in the past few days the dollar has strengthened by a few percent, so it may be a good time for people outside the UK to purchase items from my list. The pound has fallen over the past weeks from $1.67 down to $1.59.

Richard Roberts has been kind enough to provide me with another batch
of his 'Tarot Revelations' book, written in collaboration with Joseph Campbell.
This is again available through the alchemy web bookshop. The first batch
sold out two months ago.

I am now working full time on publishing, and have a number of items currently in preparation. I am always interested in considering works about alchemy and hermetic philosophy for publication in my series.

There has been a good response to my idea to set up an alchemy research library, and a number of items have been donated. If you want to help this project see the pages on the alchemy web site

My thanks to all those who have already donated books.

With best wishes,

Adam McLean
