*JUNG ORDERS AN ALCHEMICAL TRACT FROM E.P. GOLDSCHMIDT: Flamel, the French mediaeval alchemist, was author principally of Le Livre des figures hiéroglyphiques, as well as Le sommaire philosophique, Le Livre des laveures, and Le Bréviaire de Flamel, his works being first published in the seventeenth century. Jung’s alchemical library is currently in the process of being digitised by the Jung Foundation in collaboration with ETH Zurich.
