Alciato's Book of Emblems. Andrea Alciato's Emblematum liber or Book of Emblems had enormous influence and popularity in the 16th and 17th centuries. It is a collection of Latin emblem poems, each consisting of a motto a proverb or other short enigmatic expression , a picture, and an epigrammatic text. Alciato's book was first published in , and was expanded in various editions during the author's lifetime. It began a craze for emblem poetry that lasted for several centuries.
Usually known simply as the Emblemata , the first emblem book appeared in Augsburg Germany in under the title Viri Clarissimi D. Andreae Alciati Iurisconsultiss. Produced by the publisher Heinrich Steyner, the unauthorized first print edition was compiled from a manuscript of Latin poems which the Italian jurist Andrea Alciato had dedicated to his friend Conrad Peutinger and circulated to his acquaintances. The word "emblemata" is simply the plural of the Greek word "emblema", meaning a piece of inlay or mosaic, or an ornament: in his preface to Peutinger, Alciato describes his emblems as a learned recreation, a pastime for humanists steeped in classical culture. The Emblemata grew to include over individual emblems and appeared in hundreds of editions, of which probably the best known is that published in Padua by Tozzi in , the Emblemata Cum Commentariis Amplissimis. The "very full commentaries" to which the title refers were written by the French scholar Claude Mignault.
