About this Item

"Emblemes " by Francis Quarles. Early printing. Printed for William Freeman, London, 1635. 18m0[4" x 6.5"], 350 pages. Bound with a partial set of Hieroglyphikes of the Life of Man (London: 1634) continuing the pagination of the first work (eight plates only, ending at p.350). Half-bound in leather over marbled boards. Gilt stamped label and decorations with raised bands to the spine. Marbled endpapers and paste-downs with all edges gilt. Engraved title page backed with letterpress text verso, the full set of engraved images and text. Rubbing to the boards with light wear at the joints. Scattered toning to the textblock. The work by which Quarles is best known, the Emblems, was originally published in 1635, with grotesque illustrations engraved by William Marshall and others. The forty-five prints in the last three books are borrowed from the designs by Boetius à Bolswert for the Pia Desideria (Antwerp, 1624) of Herman Hugo. Each "emblem" consists of a paraphrase from a passage of Scripture, expressed in ornate and metaphorical language, followed by passages from the Christian Fathers, and concluding with an epigram of four lines. ~Wikipedia.
