This morning I started researching some intriguing images that I had downloaded from the Internet some time ago. I then discovered that this was a hoax. Someone had constructed a "book" and had it uploaded onto an Internet archive site. I decided to fully document this and you can view it on my page devoted to this alchemical hoax.

It does make me wonder if there are any more of these out there and whether this will become more common. The ability to mimic material using computer graphics programs, makes it sometimes difficult to sort out what is genuine and what is a modern contrivance.

Of course, hoaxes and deceptions were common in the history of alchemy, so it may not be too surprising that these turn up today.
