This epigram emphasizes the value of a small booklet that succinctly encapsulates the profound and complex knowledge found in the extensive works of ancient and contemporary scholars on wisdom and alchemy. It suggests that the essence of these vast teachings, which originally required significant effort, time, and resources to acquire, can now be accessed more easily and affordably through this concise text. The author encourages readers to appreciate the booklet's ability to distill and convey the rich insights of both old and new wisdom without the extensive labor previously necessary.
