"The Comte De Saint-Germain is one of history's most mysterious characters. In the middle of the Eighteenth century he appeared suddenly, a man of mature years and unusual learning. An intimate of Louise XV and Madame de Pompadour, this 'man without a past' gained renown as a chemist, musician, composer, diplomat and esoteric religious figure. Jean Overton Fuller's fresh study of Saint-Germain probes little-known areas of 18th Century political and spiritual life and provides new answers about a figure who, to Frederick the Great, was 'A man whose riddle has never been solved." from a blurb on the book.
