Most of the drawings were replaced by photographs. Most of the photographs in the 2nd edition are similar to the original drawings, although they are not the same, and in three different images the differences are noticeable.

Photographs and drawings are not the same and serve different purposes; photographs only show the same things that the naked eye can perceive, but drawings offer the illustrator a way to accentuate different aspects of the images, and thus add more symbolic depth to the scenes depicted.
There are also many small details that differ between the drawings and the photographs, but we will say no more, it is up to the reader to extract the symbolic meanings of the original drawings, aided by the masterful exposition of Fulcanelli, which is shown in this translation as originally presented in its first edition, including the dedication to the brothers of Heliopolis and the strange coat of arms at the end of the text.

Dwellings of the Philosophers is a fundamental work for alchemy scholars. It is a general treatise on alchemy, enriched by many explanations and comments on the main traditional authors texts. Also, analyzing the hermetic symbolism applied to civil constructions, Fulcanelli sheds light on many alchemical riddles. This book analyses in depth the architectural elements and motifs of different buildings, from a modest house built in the 16th century in Lisieux a small Norman town , the Dampierre Castle, the Holyrood Palace in Edinburgh, and several other chosen examples.
Fulcanelli clearly explains, at the beginning of his work in History and Monument , that carvings and statues offer a truer message than the always distorted written accounts.
Likewise, Fulcanelli offers much information about the operations and procedures of the alchemical work, analyzing and unveiling the allegories used by many writers of hermetic art to veil the knowledge from those who are not deserving of it. Buy the hardcover version at Amazon. Sojourner Books.
