Caption: This historical illustration, (1512), by surgeon Hieronymus Brunschwig depicts an alchemist's workshop. It is entitled 'Liber de arte Distillandi de Compositis.' Potion-making required knowledge of chemistry, instruments, and a wide variety of ingredients and was fundamental to the practice of alchemy. Alchemists concentrated the power of their ingredients by distilling their solutions with complicated apparatus including alembics, retorts, and cauldrons.
