Description

    120 Issues of the Scarce and Influential Alchemy Journal

    AMBIX. The Journal of the Society for the Study (History) of Alchemy and (Early) Chemistry. Published for the Society for the History of Alchemy and Chemistry. Cambridge/London: W. Heffer and Sons/Taylor and Francis, 1937-1997. First editions. 120 octavo issues. Bound in printed wrappers. Some toning to wrappers and page edges of early issues. Occasional spine and cover chipping, with Vol. I, No. 2 covers detached but present. A few issues have neat ownership signature on upper right of front cover. Some prospectuses laid in. Overall, copies of this widely influential and extremely scarce early scientific journal are in very good or better condition. To put a collection of this periodical together piecemeal would be virtually impossible.

    "The Society (SHAC), founded in 1937, has consistently maintained the highest standards of scholarship in all aspects of the history for alchemy and chemistry from early times to present. The journals coverage is wide and varied, ranging from studies in exoteric and esoteric alchemy to recent chemistry. The presentation of scientific ideas, methods and discoveries is made as non- technical as possible, consistent with academic rigour and scientific accuracy."

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
