The Hermetic Museum takes its readers on a magical mystery tour spanning an arc from the medieval cosmogram and images of Christian mysticism, through the fascinating world of alchemy to the art of the Romantic era. The enigmatic hieroglyphs of cabbalisits, Rosicrucians and Freemasons are shown to be closely linked with early scientific illustrations in the fields of medicine, chemistry, optics and colour theory.
