I think there should be more sources for this page. Also, the links are all external links... they should link to other wikipages or have teh external link section on the bottom! -Andrew

Emblem book[edit]

There is a link to emblem book at See also; is this indeed an emblem book? The picture looks like it could be, but without sources I'm not sure enough to say so in the text or add the article to category:emblem books or to the list at emblem book#Timeline. — Sebastian 20:43, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

This nice blog shows how closely they are related, so I'm being bold and make the changes that express my unsourced opinion. — Sebastian 00:16, 1 February 2016 (UTC)
It's a collection of alchemical texts. Some of the texts, like the 12 keys, and the book of lambspringck would qualify as emblem books. Others wouldn't.Car Henkel (talk) 08:59, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
Thank you for your reply. Is the "book of lambspringck" part of the Musaeum Hermeticum, or is it a separate book? — Sebastian 10:08, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
Both. Emblem book first published in 1625 and it looks like it's number eleven in the list of contents from the 1678 version of the Musaeum Hermeticum. See Klossowski de Rola's The Golden Game for more. Cheers. Car Henkel (talk) 19:04, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
