Emblems Ancient and Modern (1699)

Beautiful 17th century book showing various emblems with mottos described in German, Latin, French and Italian, and the emblems themselves described only in German. Some highlights include a floating stone, a lion being suspended over an empty throne, another lion gazing into a mirror and a flying ball.

Here are a few choice examples, cut out and "cleaned".
