Alchemist's chamber Robert Vaughan
Product images of Alchemist's chamber
Two men busy at work in an alchemist's chamber, attending to the furnaces. They are framed by an arch and the chamber appears to be located within a grand building, possibly a castle. A thick floral border containing insects and birds lines the print. Figure 5 from Elias Ashmole's Theatrum chemicum Britannicum: containing severall poeticall pieces of our famous English philospohers..., a compilation of alchemical literature selected and annotated by the author. This figure is the last illustration in Chapter 1: Thomas Norton’s ‘The Ordinall of Alchimy’, a poetic guide to the precise processes of alchemy, first published in 1477.
