Emblem books were the height of book arts produced during the Renaissance by Hermetic Philosophers. The Hieroglyphical Key describes a rare alchemical book by Abraham the Jew wherein the Great Secret was revealed to Flamel and his wife Pernelle. Using symbolic emblems as a means of explaination, Flamel unviels the details of the Great Work.

Nicholas Flamel’s Hieroglyphical Key is offered with two additional texts; Summary of Philosophy and his, Testament. The quality of the emblematic engravings in the Ouroboros Press edition are exquisite and are reproduced in crisp offset printing.
