Restorers of Alchemical Manuscripts Society (RAMS)

The goal of the RAMS was to obtain copies of limited editions of ancient Alchemical manuscripts, tracts, printed works and other such materials. From these, certain items are selected for restoration.

RAMS was a loosely knit group composed of private citizens around the world, directed by Hans Nintzel. It was their hope that their efforts will perhaps result in renewed interest in the science of Alchemy or even contribute to new discoveries or fields of experimentation. While this material is for all on the path of Alchemy, it is particularly for the sincere practicing Alchemist.

The transcription of this material was as verbatim as human skills permitted. The only exceptions was to make the matter more readable, or understandable, with some ‘modernization’.

In October 2012, the complete collection of the Original RAMS library was digitalized on The complete collection contains over 290+ texts and comprises over 10,000 pages.
