        Andreæ Alciati Emblemata cum commentarijs Claudij Minois,

      Francisci Sanctij ... & notis Laurentij Pignorij ... Opera et vigilijs Ioannis Thuilij.., engraved additional title, title with printer's woodcut device, lxxx, 1001pp thick quarto, with 211 [of 212] fine woodcut emblems within elaborate frames, contemporary limp vellum (this torn at hinge but could repair, no loss), preliminaries with some staining in upper corner but this moderate, pages 21/22 and 23/24 loose and creased at edges, pages 25/26 and 27/28 missing (with the loss of the woodcut for emblem five), a few minor blemishes, "Patauij, typis Pauli Frambotti Bibliopolae", 1661. This edition not in BL online catalogue. Andrea Alciato's Emblematum liber or Book of Emblems had enormous influence and popularity in the 16th and 17th centuries. It is a collection of 212 Latin emblem poems, each consisting of a motto (a proverb or other short enigmatic expression), a picture, and an epigrammatic text. Alciato's book was first published in 1531, and was expanded in various editions during the author's lifetime. It began a craze for emblem poetry that lasted for several centuries. Andreas Alciat was born on May 8, 1492 in Milan or nearby Alzate, the son of a prosperous merchant. He was a successful lawyer and university professor and lived at various times in Milan, Bologna, Avignon, and Paris. He died on January 12, 1550. Alciat's Liber Emblemata was the first of many emblem books that were the literary vogue in the 16th century. At this time interest in the newly rediscoved Egyptian hieroglyphics ran high among the educated and the emblem books were, in part, an attempt to define a pictographic language. Alciat compiled his first collection of emblems in 1522. The first printing was in 1531. It was reprinted no less than 130 times between 1532 and 1790. A photograph of this book can be sent on request.
