A.E. Waite-The Turba Philosophorum (1896)
Known unto the Wise as "The Crowd of Philosophers", this twelfth century treatise records the meeting of the "Hermetic Association for the Advancement of Alchemy", and gives voice to the alchemical wisdom of several centuries. From Pythagoras to the Thrice-Greatest Hermes, the adepts converse on the keys of the Royal Art and the nature of the Magnum Opus, in their pursuit of the Philosopher's Stone.
