Emblematic imagery - 18th Century Frontispiece engravings
Many books, during the 17th and 18th centuries, adopted a frontispiece engraving opposite the letterpress title page. This could be tipped into the letterpress book after printing and was less expensive and time consuming than printing an engraving on the title page. Often these frontispieces symbolically summarised the contents of the book.
