Cats and Farlie: Moral Emblems

Moral Emblems by Jacob Cats and Robert Farlie (1860)
The full title reads: "Moral Emblems, with aphorisms, adages, and proverbs, of all ages and nations." The book is a treasure trove of delights, with so many nice details, like the proverbs written in the margins drawn around the illustrations and text! Wonderful!
