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'."

"Books received by my mother thank you so much. She is so happy and it has calmed her down, she has been so hyper and anxious the last few days, but your magic has worked wonders. Thank you thank you thank you!" Carolyn in London

Good afternoon, this may be a little random, but I have had an experience due to your shop!
I popped in a couple of weeks ago and picked-up a book for my grandma related to WW1 and Castle Donington. Through her reading of the book, we discovered that it had some relatives in it. We found out more information about our family history and how they passed in the war. I used this information to undertake some online/Facebook research and I am now in contact with some Austrian relatives.
A 10-minute trip to you has led to a lot!

"This fabulous bookshop is quirky, welcoming - an absolute treasure trove. The time's I've challenged the team to find a certain book for me and never have they let me down. Now when I go in they make suggestions of books they think I may enjoy and even keep books to one side for me if I'm not about for a day or two.

They also provide the most wonderful monthly subscription to my Mum - a cosy crime novel each month. As I live a good distance from her it's lovely to hear her excitement when she receives her book and to talk about what has been sent on the 'phone. A great gift thoughtfully delivered by an knowledgeable, wonderful team. Thank you and keep up the wonderful work! You are, without a doubt, my favourite shop in all the world! x" Rachel in Wales
