Restorers of Alchemical Manuscripts Society (R.A.M.S.) Digital Library. A unique source of original material. R.A.M.S., the Restoration of Alchemical Manuscripts Society, was based in Richardson Texas, U.S.A. R.A.M.S. was loosely knit group composed of private citizens around the world, directed by Hans Nintzel. The goal of the society was to seek out and obtain copies of very limited editions of ancient Alchemical manuscripts, tracts, printed works and other such materials and literature.
