The first issue of the first volume is dated 1802, but there are bibliographic references to a volume published in 1799. It contained general articles on "chemischhmystische Theosophie," Tussetani's Universalprozesses, "System der Mermetik," and learned responses to questions posed by various inquirers. In 1805 leadership of the society passed to Baron von Sternhaym of Karlsruhe, who revived the journal as Hermes. Listed in H.C. Bolton, A Select Bibliography of Chemistry, 1492-1902, Second Supplement (Washington, D.C., 1904).
