Go to the Merlin Mystery Solution Index.

This is Part 11 of my solution to The Merlin Mystery by Jonathan Gunson and Marten Coombe.

This post provides the full list of 75 solution objects in their correct order. It also confirms which page of the book each object comes from to make it easier to check.

Obtaining this list can take several hours of work turning back and forth through the book, even when you know exactly what you’re doing.

These solution objects represent the Alchemist’s spell and the method of casting it. Working out how is quite possibly the hardest part of the puzzle since it is hugely subjective and open to personal interpretation.

If you can successfully read Jonathan Gunson’s mind and translate this series of objects into a cogent set of instructions, congratulations! If not, the next and penultimate part of this solution will do so for you.
