Title: D. And. Alciati Emblemata denvo ab ipso autore recognita, ac quae desiderabantur, imaginibus locupletata; accesserunt noua aliquot ab autore emblemata suis quoque eiconibus insignita, 1566. Profusely Annotated
Author: Andrea Alciati
Publisher: Lvgdvni, Apvd Gvlielmvm Rovill
Condition: Good

A mid 16th century edition of Alciati’s Emblemata, being the first and most widely disseminated emblem book, based upon the compilation of manuscripts and Latin Poems that Alciati had dedicated to his to his friend Conrad Peutinger, and circulated to his acquaintances. The emblem book was first printed in 1531, under the title Viri Clarissimi D. Andreae Alciati Iurisconsultiss. Mediol. Ad D. Chonradum Peutingerum Augustanum, Iurisconsultum Emblematum Liber. It was soon followed by a 1534 edition authorized by Alciati, under the title of Andrea Alciati's Little Book of Emblems. The word itself, "emblemata" is a plural of the Greek word "emblema", meaning a piece of inlay or mosaic, or an ornament.

Alciati’s Emblemata grew to include over 200 individual emblems and has since then appeared in hundreds of editions, and birthing thousands of imitations and successors in all the languages of Europe. Whether they were religious, romantic, or of a third sort in nature, emblem books became an integral part of European culture for the next two centuries. There are over 200 large woodcuts of emblems and trees.

This volume has been heavily annotated throughout by several hands, and several early doodles.

Pages 17-18 and 65-66 are lacking, as are the last three index leaves.

One half vellum bound volume in octavo, 222 of 226 pages

This volume is in very good shape, with minimal rubbing or wear to the binding. The text block is detached from the spine, though holding to the rear board. The lower margin of page 205 has been unusually cut away. There is some foxing and staining throughout.
