Notes: From the foreword by the author: "The picture given in the Crystal Gazers of the two workers in magic and alchemy is believed to be substantially correct. For the rest the author has tried to set forth faithfully and as nearly in the idiom of the time as possible the strange mixture of science with supestition; of comedy with tragedy; of trickery and fraud with unbending loyalty and honor that characterizes that remarkable age. Berkeley, June 1936."
