CAMERARIUS, JOACHIM
Symbolorum et emblematum animalibus quadrupedibus.

(19.5 x 14 cm); 116 ff.; Illustrated with engraved title-page and 100 engraved circular emblems by Hans Sibmacher. Binding with some wear, some very light marginal staining, overall very good. Earl of Mexborough copy with his bookplate on the front paste-down; bookplate (by Marie Angel?) initialed "DP" on the front fly-leaf.

A charming emblem book on quadrupeds, both real and fantastical, compiled by the renowned botanist, Joachim Camerarius.
