Tony's Rare Book Spotlight
Albert Richard Riedel (1911-1984) was internationally known as Frater Albertus. He was a Rosicrucian, an alchemist, and founder of the influential, Salt Lake City-based Paracelsus Research Society. He published some dozen books in German and English between the 1930s and early 1980s, the most influential during the 1960s. Persons seeking these books have been persistently thwarted by the small numbers of them available – most were printed in editions of only 500 copies.

We recently bought a nice collection containing most of Frater Albertus’s alchemical titles, more than we’ve ever had at once, some in duplicate, some autographed. All are first printings.
