This is a collection of real alchemical tracts translated into English, all concerning the making of the Philosophers' Stone. You can be sure that no tracts in this collection are fraudulent. As you read, each text will compliment the others to give you another piece of the puzzle, which will in turn help you to decode the cryptic language of the alchemists.
