Symbola et emblemata tam moralia quam sacra - Die handschriftlichen Embleme von 1587


 

Joachim Camerarius (1534–1598), the Nuremberg doctor and botanist, produced one of the most influential writings on European emblematics with his four-volume work which was published from 1595–1605. In this 1587 volume, appearing for the time with scholarly commentary, Camerarius develops a new project - he sets the moral-religious interpretation of the world against the empirical-scientific view. In this edition, Camerarius’ watercolors and interpretative texts are accompanied by extensive notes so that his influences and intended effects can be clearly understood.
