Call of Cthulhu: Letters from Arkham
Splendor Solis - "The Splendour of the Sun"
By Salomon Trismosis - 16th Century
Latin by Salomon Trismosin, 16th century
This work is very old and in poor condition but is beautifully engraved and contains seven chapters with 22 elaborate images, set in ornamental borders and niches. The symbolic processes show the classical alchemical death and rebirth of the king, and incorporates a series of seven flasks, each associated with one of the planets. It deals largely with spiritual and physical immortality, physical transformations, and the like.
This was recovered from the basement of Michael Felder in Martin’s Beach, Massachusetts, on August 30, 1926, by Professor Beaurigard Johanson, Dr. Katie Brooks, and Chip Mathers.
