Superposition: a Lexicon game
Jeremiah Elder’s exposition on his choice of ‘Desert Island’ reading material for Aborath Today magazine:
Robor Blueprints are the collected charts of Thomas Robor originally published in five separate folios: , published in 1666; , published in 1669; and , both published in 1674; and , published in 1680.
The magna opera were posthumously combined into the encyclopedic Robor Blueprints. The charts are a diagrammatical specification of the elemental kingdoms (epistomological parallels, I understand, to the native classical natural philosophies) interspersed with Robor’s own annotations and quotations from the writings of his contemporaries which contain a relevance to the kingdom under discussion.
