CALID DID NOT WRITE ALCHEMY BOOKS
Khalid ibn Yazid (Calid) (? – 704) was an Arab general and governor who probably never wrote any books about alchemy or mathematics.
The legend began as a scam when a 17th century French writer (now called pseudo-Flamel) of alchemy books used the pseudonym of the famous 14th century scribe and manuscript-seller Nicolas Flamel to invent a false story that pseudo-Flamel’s alchemy books contained ancient secret knowledge given to Flamel by a Jew who had possession of secret ancient manuscripts about Egyptian alchemy written by Calid.
