Emblemata amatoria, iam demum emendata

Book cover
Imprint from colophon Introductory poem "Aen de ioncvrovwen van Hollandt" printed in civilité. It is signed by "Theocritus à Ganda," author of the work as a whole. Landwehr identifies Theocritus as Jacobus Viverius, rather than Daniel Heinsius as formerly. See Landwehr, p. XII Engraved t.p. adapted from Theatre d'amour (ca. 1606), the source of the emblematic ill. as well. The engravings, mostly reversed, were probably done by Daniel van den Bremden. See Landwehr, 656ff The 24 engraved circular emblematic ill. have Latin distychs around the edges, those for the 1st and 8th emblems signed by Hugo Grotius. At the bottom edge of each circular ill. are mottos in French, Latin or Italian, which are repeated on the facing page at the head of 8 lines of explanatory verse in Dutch, printed in civilité "Elegie, ofte Nacht-clachte" (p. [61]-[63]) signed D.H. for Daniel Heinsius, who also wrote "Het sterf huys van Cupido" which follows on p. [64]; see Landwehr. Both poems printed in Roman with proper names in Gothic Signatures: A-H Landwehr, J. Emblem books in the Low Countries Binding: modern mottled goatskin. Spine tooled in gilt
