The Fulcanelli Phenomenon - Kenneth Rayner Johnson
The story of a twentieth-Century Alchemist in the light of a new examination of the Hermetic Tradition
Hardback First Edition with dust cover
An examination into the life and work of the mysterious 20th century alchemist who somehow vanished in 1944, the result of much travel and considerable research on the part of the author. It also includes "a special chapter, contributed by Paul Mevryl, a long-time student of alchemy and Fulcanelli, [which] examines some startling prophetic indications encoded in an ancient stone monument which was itself highlighted by Fulcanelli in his own classic work, 'Le Mystere des Cathedrales'."
