Hermes Trismegistos, whose books are of very great nay the highest moment, in order to understand well and truly our Royal Art. Andernacus Paracelsus whose writings are like a clear day's sun light, but if you can light upon his Codicills which heretofore were called Psalterium Chymicum or Paracelsus his Manual make much of them.
