Nothing is known of Abraham Eleazar, supposedly a Jewish alchemist and author of this remarkable book about ancient alchemy: Uraltes chymisches Werk… (“Age-Old Chymical Work”) which was first published in Erfurt in 1734 (Source). The Jewish Encyclopedia states that the Eleazar’s name was likely to be fictional, and the real author might have been Julius Gervasius of Schwarzenberg.

The images are from the second edition of the book (according to the titlepage), published in Leipzig in 1760, taken from e-rara.ch/Stiftung der Werke von C.G.Jung, Zürich. The entire PDF can be downloaded for personal and educational purposes on their website.
