With reproductions of several hard-to-find foldouts of alchemical engravings, this book is a collector’s edition of a classic alchemical study. First published in 1617, Atalanta Fugiens is Michael Maier’s finest work. Each of the 50 emblems of Atalanta Fugiens consists of a motto, a print, and an epigram. De Jong’s translation and commentary on the mottos and epigrams reveals the meaning and importance of the Atalanta Fugiens, the sources Maier used, and the mutual relationships between the emblems. She also includes an additional 30 alchemical engravings that explain her research. Illustrated, with foldouts.
