Aesop Illustrations: Alciato

These illustrations are from Alciato's Emblemata, some of which contain Aesopic motifs. There are lots of great editions of Alciato online at the Alciato at Glasgow website. Click here for more illustration slideshows. There are about a dozen of Alciato's emblems which overlap with Aesop; you can read an online Latin-English bilingual edition of Alciato online at Memorial University.

Here is the Alciato slideshow (apologies to iPad users - the slideshows are Flash-based, but you can view the Flickr album directly if the slideshow does not work):
