With scholars now showing new respect for the Hermetic arts and those fantastic and wonderfully devout diagrams and figures appearing in the works of seventeenth century alchemists, it was felt that now is the time to reissue Codex Rosae Crucis, considered the definitive work in its field. Invaluable for the English translation accompanying a facsimile of the original eighteenth century manuscript. as well as Mr. Hall's interpretative comments, the Codex threads together fragments of history pertaining to the Rosicrucian foundations in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Of special interest is a picture of the only known representation of the Temple of the Rosy Cross from an engraving in 1618. In his work entitled Psychology and Alchemy, the famous psychologist C. G. Jung reproduced the plate of Michelspacher's Cabala and made numerous other references to material contained in Codex Rosae Crucis. Folio size, with full-color plates and two-color manuscript section.
