Abstract
  • ‘Atalanta fugiens’ is an alchemical emblem book, written by German physician Michael Maier, with engravings by Theodor de Bry. The book title refers to the story in Greek mythology of the huntress Atalanta. The first edition of Atalanta fugiens was published in 1617. It combines fascinating engravings, prose (Latin), verse (Latin and German) and also pieces of music in the form of fugues.
