Treadwell's Book of the Month
Tabula Smaragdina – Paul Cowlan. Signed
This booklet is an excellent introduction and explanation of the famed Emerald Tablet. It gives a translation of the tablet and an excellent explanatory essay. Cowlan guides the reader through the text, unpacking its symbolic meanings as a code for the alchemists. Recommended.
This compact and cryptic Hermetic text, regarded by European alchemists as the foundation of their art and its Hermetic tradition. The first known appearance of the Emerald Tablet is in Arabic between the sixth and eighth centuries, and it was then translated into Latin in the twelfth century. Numerous translations, interpretations and commentaries followed. This rendering has been compiled consulting both the Arabic and Latin texts.
Signed by the author.
