Brown University Library News: Brown Library’s First Born-Digital Publication Awarded Prize by the American Historical Association

Brown University Library News: Brown Library’s First Born-Digital Publication Awarded Prize by the American Historical Association. “Furnace and Fugue brings to life in digital form an enigmatic seventeenth-century text, Michael Maier’s musical alchemical emblem book Atalanta fugiens. This intriguing and complex text from 1618 reinterprets Ovid’s legend of Atalanta as an alchemical allegory in a series of fifty emblems, each of which contains text, image, and a musical score for three voices.” The prize will be used to build a companion Web site for the digitized work.
