Reproduces four late 16th century English emblem books, providing brief critical and bibliographic introductions, translations.


This volume is part of the Index Emblematicus series, a project whose aim is to collect and edit important works of emblem literature produced throughout Europe during the Renaissance.

Volume 2 of the English Emblem Tradition provides extensive critical apparatus for four late sixteenth-century English works: P.S., The Heroicall Devises of M. Claudius Paradin [and] The Purtratures or Emblemes of Gabriel Simeon, A Florentine; Andrew Willet, Sacrorum Emblematum Centuria Una; and Thomas Combe, The Theater of Fine Devices. The volume not only reproduces each of these emblem books, but also provides brief critical and bibliographic introductions, translations of the mottoes, descriptions of the picturae, and indices to the visual and verbal components of the works.

Formerly a no-man's land between literature and the fine arts, the emblem is currently being re-mapped bibliographically, making accessible tracts of this lost terrain. This volume is the second in a sub-series of the Index Emblematicus dedicated to the English Emblem Tradition, providing a uniform and systematic set of indexes to all emblematic works published in English from 1569 to 1700. Volume One contained the first four books of emblems and imprese that appeared in English. Volume Two contains the next four: P.S. (Paradin), P.S. (Simeoni), Willet, and Combe. Includes facsimile reproductions of the title pages and of the emblems. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
