A New Light of Alchymie (London, 1650) is an English translation of works by the Polish alchemist Michael Sendivogius. It includes writings by Paracelsus (1493 or 1494-1541), the influential Swiss doctor and chemist Theophrastus Phillippus Aureolus Bombastus Von Hohenheim.The translator, “J. F.,” is believed to be John French (1616-1657), an English army surgeon, author, and editor of several alchemical works. (“French” has been lightly penciled in beside the initial “F” on the title-page.) The primary author, Sendivogius, greatly admired by his contemporaries and by future alchemists, made his mark on modern science with his treatise De lapide philosophorum, which contains what is considered to be the first idea of the existence of oxygen. As is the case with numerous volumes in the Danforth collection, A New Light of Alchymie contains many underlined passages and detailed marginal notes that seem to track the results of experiments, indicating that it was frequently consulted by its previous owners.
