Postcard - ‘He who tries to gain access’.
Emblem 27/50: He who tries to gain access to the Philosophical Rose Garden without a key, is like a man who attempts to walk without feet. A key may be a small, insignificant object, but you still have to know where to look for it. Michael Maier (1568-1622) describes phases of the alchemical process in Atalanta fugiens, 1618. Engraving by Mattheus Merian sr (1593-1650), 8,5x9,5 cm | © EFM/Bibliotheca Philosophica Hermetica Collection
