Tarot & Emblem Books

Though there is a great wealth of material on Emblem Book online, not much research has paid attention to the relationships of the Emblem Tradition, to the Tarot, if indeed any such links exist. Important among Elizabethan Emblem Books is: Henry Peacham’s Minerva Britanna

This online edition was compiled by the students of the Middlebury College first-year seminar on Emblem Literature.

Here is an 18th Century Edition of: Cesare Ripa, Iconologia, (Perugia, 1764-67)
