from: Jonas Kitzkatz, Speculum alchimistarum, Hof: Matthäus Pfeilschmidt, 1583
Eber's epigram addresses those interested in alchemy, providing guidance on understanding its secrets. The text, meant for careful and discerning readers, explains nature's principles and the transformation of elements. It speaks of turning the imperfect into perfect and boasts a richness of content that would even astonish Theophrastus. The reader is encouraged to rejoice in receiving these secrets and the clear path of virtue, while also being warned to approach the craft with caution. The epigram suggests a harmonious pursuit of alchemy under the guidance of both art and Christ.
