Cf. H90 (Artis auriferæ) and H1608 (Theatrum chemicum), and the notes from the 'Turba philosophorum' on f. 4r of Keynes Ms. 25.

[15]

Excerpts from the hugely influential 'Turba philosophorum' ('Crowd of Philosophers'), an anthology of pre-medieval alchemical texts published in Latin translation (from Arabic) as Artis auriferæ, quam chemiam vocant, volumina dua (Basel, 1610), and again under the title 'Turba philosophorum' in the 1659-61 Strasbourg edition of Lazarus Zetzner's Theatrum chemicum. The excerpts made by Newton are a collation of these two editions, with some passages representing his own commentary and notes on discrepancies between his sources. This almost certainly dates the manuscript to after 1669, when Newton bought his copy of the Theatrum chemicum.
