Waite, Arthur Edward. An Ancient Alchemical Treatise Translated from the Latin. Ouroboros Press, 2006. First Ouroboros Press Edition. ISBN: 0966295056. [4], 157, 6 pp. Translated by Arthur Edward Waite. Maroon cloth with gilt title and device, in dust jacket. Slight bow to front cover; overall near fine in fine dust jacket. Hand numbered copy no. 41 of 700.

Originally published in the twelfth century, this treatise records the meeting of the “Hermetic Association for the Advancement of Alchemy," whose Adepts converse on everything from Pythagoras and Hermes Trismegistus, to the keys of the Royal Art and the nature of the Magnum Opus in their pursuit of the Philosopher’s Stone. This edition represents the most complete translation of the Turba, produced by Waite after he'd examined multiple variants of the original Latin text.
