The Book of Lambspring

This is a well known work which was first published by Nicholas Barnaud in 1599. It consisted of a series of 15 verses outlining the alchemical process. It was later issued by Lucas Jennis as part of Dyas chymica tripartita, 1625, and this was illustrated with a series of 15 engravings, together with a symbolic coat-of-arms and a frontispiece.
