Printed by D. & G. Bruce. Sometimes called emblem books, this poetry book has allegorical illustrations (engravings). The leaves with illustrations are on thicker paper, and probably run through the press twice, once for the letterpress words, and again for the engravings. First published in the 18th century, this is a nice illustrated edition.
