Tract on the Tincture and Oil of Antimony: Now Available!
This was a one-day editing work alongside some material I got done for Sickness in Hell and the Greater Key; a little work by Roger Bacon on processing antimony to make the infamous red oil of the philosophers, using also lead, in a way quite similar to the work of Hollandus on the topic of Saturn.
The process here is quite literal so those who desire more how-to and less metaphoric alchemical lore will probably appreciate this specific tract. The medical applications of the final result of this work are considered here to be quite prolific- ranging from treating gout to preventing or stopping mania and fever.
