3. Doug Skinner, FF Alumn, publishes translation of Alchemical Dream Vision.

Doug Skinner's translation of Giovanni Battista Nazari's Three Dreams On Metallic Transmutation is now available from the Magnum Opus Hermetic Sourceworks in Glasgow, Scotland. Nazari's work, originally published in Brescia in 1599, recounts an extravagant initiatory journey in a sequence of three dreams. It takes its narrator/protagonist through allegorical landscapes and encounters with nymphs, monsters, madmen, and scholars in his search for the physical and spiritual secrets of alchemy. Along the way, Nazari interlards verses, classical references, digressions on botany and geography, and an important alchemical bibliography. The book has long been considered a hermetic classic in Italy, and its illustrations have been widely reprinted, but it has never before been translated into English. This edition is #27 in the Magnum Opus Hermetic Sourceworks, limited to 300 copies, hand-bound and signed by editor/publisher Adam McLean. For more information, see www.alchemy.dial.pipex.com/mohs27.html.
