Subject: ACADEMY: Julius Ruska digital library
From: Adam McLean
Date: 3 May 2006

Thomas Ruska, the great-grandson of Julius Ruska, is making some
of this great scholar's works available on a web site archive.
For this project he is working with Dr. Thomas Gloning of Marburg
University in Germany.

In this digital library we will find many of his most popular texts
in PDF versions (resolution 200 and 300 dpi). Among the
next texts being prepared are Ruska's "Tabula Smaragdina"
and "Turba Philosophorum". - Link: "Digitale Bibliothek"

Subject: ACADEMY: Alexandre Perapoteus

I have found the name "Alexandre Perapoteus" in an alchemical text
dated 1350 and I try to find his real identity. Can anyone help me?
Has anyone read similar names?

Thanks all,

José Rodríguez Guerrero

Subject: ACADEMY: Bibliotheca Philosophica Hermetica catalogue now online
From: Adam McLean
Date: 30 May 2006

The Bibliotheca Philosophica Hermetica - J.R. Ritman Library in Amsterdam
has now made its catalogue of its collection printed books accessible
through an online search engine. This will provide a very useful source
for bibliographical information as the library has such a fine collection.

I am sure a number of people will welcome this development
and make use of this facility.
