Catalogue Note

A charming emblem book, previously published by Janot in 1540. Despite the printed date of 1543, this has been dated to 1544 on typographic grounds. "The cuts are executed with great delicacy in the style reminiscent of Geoffroy Tory, but probably by Janot's artist F or F.I." (Fairfax Murray, p. 981).
