Theodorus Mundanus (1684*)

He was a contemporary of Isaac Newton, and he wrote a famous letter from Paris (in French,1684) to the Royal Physician and Chemist of that time, Dr. Edmund Dickinson (1624-1707), whom is reported by the diarist, John Evelyn, to have witnessed a projection utilizing the philosopher's elixir by Mundanus.

He was a very learned person, formerly a fellow of St. John's College, Oxford, in which city he practised physic, (but was unknown as to his country or abode), whom studied Chymistry into his old age.
