These are some of the books we've read and notes we've made against these books. The alchemical texts in particular are interesting. We've not read all of them…and some are in old Latin (we've not read those). That said, many of the alchemical texts have beautiful images that are worth browsing. Alphabetical order is by Author, not title.
