contents: With this important emblem book, illustrated with 51 engravings by his regular collaborator Adriaen van de Venne, Jacob Cats gave a new direction to the genre: the emblematic representation is explained three times by means of a poem, a prose text and a quotation in Dutch, Latin and French, in terms of earthly love, social and religious aspects. Later, the book was to become known by the title "Sinne- en minnebeelden" (Emblems and images of love).
