A Selection of Emblem Books

This compilation includes a selection of emblem books which are relevant for research and accessible only with difficulty otherwise. Depending on the ratio of combination of images and text, the emblem books (primarily from the 17th and the 18th century) are digitized comprehensively or partly (title, pages with images, and, where appropriate, the text pages necessary for understanding the emblems). The project focused on cataloguing and indexing: Access to the complete bibliographical information on all titles and to the individual emblems via mottos and search terms has been implemented. An academic comment on the individual works has also been integrated in the database.
