A Collection of Emblemes - Ancient and Moderne, by George Withers
In the section "To The Reader" our author writes:
There be, no doubt, some faults committed by the Printer, both Literall and Materiall, and some Errors of the Gravers in the Figures, (as in the Tetragrammaton; in the Figure of Arîon; and in the Proprieties due to some other Hieroglyphicks); but, for the most part, they are such, as Common-Readers will never perceive; and I thinke, that they who are Judicious will so plainly finde them to be no faults of mine; that, leaving them to be amended by those, to whom they appertaine; and, You, to accept of these Play-games as you please: I bid you Farewell.
Therefore all oddities and inconsistencies have been left unchanged. They have been noted at the end of the transcription.
An addendum of transcriptions and translations of the mottoes engraved around each emblem has been added to the final note as a convenience to the reader.
