Alexius of Piedmont was the pseudonym of a 16th-century alchemist Girolamo Rescelli who is best known for this book of secrets. Simply called ‘Secrets of Alexis of Piedmont’, this book sought to expound on legends, outline mysteries found in nature, but most interesting are the contents covering various “medical secrets”.  Some examples offered in this work include: solutions to kidney stones, alchemy secrets and chemical recipes, including one bizarre recipe of ‘how to make lead in your bare hand’ and ‘how to make fire burn under water’ – magic!

 

Notably this work was translated by Dr. Johannes Jacob Wecker who included some of his own commentary along with a small work on alchemical work regarding the uses of water, oils, and wines.
