Descripción Ouroboros Press, Seattle, 2011. Hardback. First edition. 8.5" x 5.25". 142pp. Beige cloth, in dust wrapper. Fine condition; fine jacket. "Born in Germany, Count Michael Maier served as the personal physician to the Bohemian Emperor Rudolph II, as well as pursued a career as an alchemist. He is well-known due to his masterful emblem book; Atalanta Fugiens, which was a blend of alchemical, mythological and musical elements. But Maier wrote other alchemical books and Ouroboros Press is very pleased to be offering the first English translation of his veritable conference of the birds; Jocus Severus. This alchemical text employs allegory in an entertaining dialogue between several species of birds who are determined to defame the Owl with wordy complaints. The Hawk acts as the Owl's defense while the Phoenix acts as final judge and arbiter over this 'conference of birds.' Rendered from the original Latin of 1617 by Darius Klein. This edition features original illustrations by Benjamin Vierling, including a folding plate depicting all the species of birds involved in the alchemical dialogue." (From the publisher.) This edition is the first English language translation of Maier's legendary work. Nº de ref. de la librería 21776
