     The following slideshow is taken from the Kerver edition of the Horapollo Hieroglyphica from Paris: 1551, the second edition with images after Kerver 1543 and the first laid out like an emblem book. The images from the book are shown together with titles, adapted appropriately, based on the translation by Boas in the Mythos edition published by Princeton University Press in 1993.
