I have checked your links, and unfortunately, the illustrations I'm seeking are not there.

The book I purchased has retained it's original size and shape, and in iteself, has not changed in any manner, aside from the replaced illustrations aforementioned.

Thanks for your assistance, I wish they could have yielded those missing works.

I think have misunderstood what you said originally. I thought you saw a book and had picked it up and browsed throught it, and came back later as you descided to purchase the book. Well i'm lost for idea's then if you saw the illustrations if you bought the book when you first saw the pictures.. Still a mystery then, an an eerie one.

Hello General... Do the drawings that are now in the book match with the text? Is it just the drawings that changed, or did the text change as well?

when I found this book I was in a "special space"

I only hope I can re-attain that level of insight, for those
illustrations were truely insightful and a wonderful meditation.

Perhaps you will find something of value in the unabridged version of the book?

Good question. I honestly don't know.

I spent more time meditating on the images themselves than I did reading the small marginal text that accompanied each image.

I honestly could not tell you if the text has changed throughout the length of the book or not.

I'd have to order it from the local bookdealer when my funds allow, and I'm not sure I'd be happy with a "sight unseen" purchase.

At this point, I'm not sure I'd be interested in another book from these publishers.

All jokes aside - if they've managed to create "transmutable" books that only show material at their personal leisure/discrection...well, I'm simply not interested in the novelty of such a book.

If I wanted Alchemy 101 - I would have been browsing the Occult/New Age section, not the Fine Arts Collections.

Still - I'll hold on to this odd book for a while, and give it another read through when I have another one of those hyperattuned moments, and see if anything 'missing" reveals itself.

is it at all possible that the vendor of the book switched it at the point of sale? when they bagged it up for you or maybe distracted you somehow, and you where prevented from taking the propper book home?
