MANUSCRIT. — KABBALE

Cabbala Mineralis Rabbi Simeon Ben Cantara. In-folio manuscript (approx. 270 x 185 mm), red morocco, wide golden lace, decorated back, inner roller, book-shaped case box (modern pastiche binding).
10 folding plates of original watercolour drawings depicting Kabbalistic scenes and alchemical figures, some of which represent God the Creator of the world; score of alchemical music.
A modern copy of this very precious treatise, which is now known only by two manuscripts, one of which, dating from the 17th century, is kept in the British Library (MS. Add. 5245).
Simeon Ben Cantara may never have existed, but its name reflects the importance of alchemy in Jewish tradition.
