7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In post-medieval Europe, Andrea Alciati's Emblematum liber (1531) was an essential part of the library of nearly every writer and artist. Scholars depended upon it to interpret contemporary art and literature, while artists and writers turned to it to invest their work with an understood didactic sense. Alciati initiated a literary fashion; hundreds of subsequent emblem books followed his prestigious example." "This modern edition of the Emblematum liber provides the original Latin texts, English translations, and the illustrations belonging to each of the 212 emblems. The editor's introduction explains both the historical importance and the cultural contexts of Alciati's emblem book, as well as its innumerable artistic applications. An appendix includes a formerly suppressed emblem, "Adversus Natural Peccantes," along with relevant commentary written by Johann Thuilius in 1612. An extensive bibliography points the student to published scholarly research specifically dealing with the emblems' artistic applications." "This new edition of Alciati's work is an essential tool for modern students of the liberal arts."--Jacket

Il libro degli emblemi : secondo le edizioni del 1531 e del 1534 by Andrea Alciati( Book )

8 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in Italian and Latin and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Il connubio tra immagini e parole, oggi così pervasivo, ha in realtà una storia ben più antica di quel che si tende a credere, e nobili progenitori tanto celebrati in passato quanto ignorati o trascurati dal presente. Tra questi è da annoverare Andrea Alciato, erudito, umanista, " austero e insofferente " giurista ricordato tra i numi tutelari della gloriosa università di Pavia. Il suo "Emblematum liber" (1531), galleria di situazioni umane trasfigurate in metafore, doveva trasmettere - similmente agli "Adagia" di Erasmo da Rotterdam, suo corrispondente - un patrimonio di saggezza e moralità facendo ricorso anche all'efficacia del mezzo iconografico. Divenne invece l'archetipo di un genere di letteratura che non solo conobbe successo in Europa fin dalla sua nascita, quasi cinquecento anni fa, ma esercitò un influsso sbalorditivo, tanto da costituire la chiave che da accesso a molta parte dell'arte e della letteratura successive

Criticism of monastic life by one of Europe's major Renaissance figures.In his letter Against Monastic Life (1514-17) Andrea Alciato, an Italian jurist and writer famous for his Emblemata, urges his friend Bernardus Mattius to reconsider his choice of monastic life. Alciato makes his argument by criticizing religious superstition, the Church's hierarchy, and monastic practices, particularly the Franciscans' hypocrisy, wealth, and divisiveness. Instead, he defends a stoic, civic humanism. Due to the troubled history of this unique manuscript and the inadequacies of the two subsequent editions
