|Second lead:, a very scarce book, le Livre des Figures Hiéroglyphiques. The other books attributed to Nicolas Flamel are obviously rough fakes devoted to swindle gulls. The problem is that you can't say anymore that not a breath of suspicion atttaches le Livre des Figures. Published in 1612, two centuries after it's alleged author, it's even not signed Nicolas Flamel, but Arnaud de la Chevalière. And it includes not even one concrete information which would allow to begin any work in order to make gold. According to this text, Nicolas Flamel would have found the method to make gold in an ancient manuscript, Aesch Mezareph, of Abraham the Jew. There is only two copies of this book one in the (french) National Librairy, The other in the Librairy of the Arsenal. But they are not available for readers.
