I tried to go backwards and make a rhyme for "awful" but it is too early on a Sunday morning for such efforts.188.8.131.52 , 15 April 2007 (UTC) after watching 'dr who' on sat, is there the possibility that clio is the hinted at 'other timelord'?
So, a certain amount of scientific censorship of new ideas seems to be inevitable. Flamarande , 14 April 2007 (UTC) Any science journal has the right to refuse to publish things they don't think are of scientific value.I am trying to identify the author and title of a book published in London in 1596. --Lambiam I think it likely that it isn't the author's actual name or a latinization of it but rather an adopted name, such as Junius, Scotius Americanus, & others I can't remember. Or (as is sometimes the case) is it not religious at all? -- The full title of "The Holy Guide" has references to English Physicians, and Chemistry.Allan Hainey , 14 April 2007 (UTC)It's going to be entirely impossible from that little.If the work is actually Rosicrucian, then it's hopeless in any case, as the authors were always pseudonymous/hoaxes and didn't want to be discovered by contemporaries.I went back to the inscription and, after a lot of comparing of letters and letter combinations, I believe the name I was looking for was Penotus. That's even wilder than alchemy184.108.40.206 , 15 April 2007 (UTC) OOOPS! Please forgive me, Lambiam.220.127.116.11 , 15 April 2007 (UTC) What is the copyright status of works (pictures, movies, music, text, etc.) produced by the government of North Korea? --Brain In AVat , 14 April 2007 (UTC) Please do not harass Clio! Whatever her circumstances, she is unlikely to be interested in someone who is after her money.(You were close, Lambda.) This name is linked in the inscription to Paracelsus, about whom there was a book published in 1596. Marco polo , 14 April 2007 (UTC)Her user page says she is a graduate student in Cambridge studying history.The bit you can make out is a common Latin ending, and there's nothing indicative about it. If you can find material on that, you'd be more likely to find owners than chasing the name on the flyleaf.Add to these problems the fact that masses of "scholars" of the day, and particularly pseudo-scholars, have had their fame vanish without a trace.For someone at this remove to find the author/owner is beyond impossible.If the work is alchemy, it's similarly likely that the owner/author is using a mask.
