After a long and excited waiting, Kevin Maurer has finally managed to deliver a great gift on the last day of the year; a complete translation of Meyer’s von Solms treatise, dated to ca 1560. Kevin has been working on this and lots of other great research for many, many years and I am personally most grateful for his generosity and hard work here. So, a deep and heartfelt thank you to Kevin and the MFFG from us here.
This is another important piece in understanding Meyer and his teachings and I encourage everyone with even a slight interest in Meyer to read it. It is well worth it.
You can find the translation here: Meyer 1560 – MFFG Research site
