The planet Mars, with Aries, the zodiacal Ram, and Scorpio/the Scorpion below; from a fourteenth-century Netherlandish illuminated manuscript of Albumazar's treatise on astrology; Sloane 3983 f.37. (British Library)

Miniature of a black sun (sol niger) setting on the outskirts of a city, from Salomon Trismosin's Splendor Solis, Germany, 1582, Harley 3469, f. 30v

The Splendor Solis is one of the most beautiful of illuminated alchemical manuscripts. The earliest version, considered to be that now in the Kupferstichkabinett in the Prussian State Museum in Berlin, is dated 1532-35, and was made in the form of a medieval manuscript and illuminated on vellum, with decorative borders like a book of hours, beautifully painted and heightened with gold.
