Reproduction images had been scanned from an ancient emblems (allegorical illustrations) book first publicated in 1613 by Gabriel Rollenhagen. Originally, emblems were engraved by Crispijn de Passe the Elder. The emblems are circular, with Latin motto around the perimeter and explanatory Latin distich engraved beneath.The emblem book emerged as a pictorial-literary genre in western Europe during the 16th century and became popular there during the 17th century and attained enormous popularity. Emblem books are collections of sets of three elements: an icon or image, a motto, and text explaining the connection between the image and motto.Emblem books descended from medieval bestiaries that explained the importance of animals, proverbs, and fables. In fact, writers often drew inspiration from Greek and Roman sources.Each combination consisted of a woodcut or engraving accompanied by one or more short texts, intended to inspire their readers to reflect on a general moral lesson derived from the reading of both picture and text together. The picture was subject to numerous interpretations: only by reading the text could a reader be certain which meaning was intended by the author, for example:Squirel EmblemCircular text surrounding the emblem reads: Superat Sollertia ViresVocabulary:supero - conquer, overcomesollertia - cleverness, skillvis - strength, force, powerDistich below the emblem reads:Nautarum vires sollertia cauta sciuriVincit, et in ligni cortice nare docet.An English rendering by George Wither reads:A little Wit, may stand in steadWhen Strength doth faile, in time of need. Elephant EmblemCircular text surrounding the emblem reads:Nusquam Tuta FidesDistich below the emblem reads:Nusquam tuta fides: nec somnus tutus ab hoste;Qui sapit, hic cautus, nocte dieque, pavet.An English rendering by George Wither reads:Bee warie, wheresoe're, thou beeFor, from deceit, no place is free.
