Description

Illustration for the last emblem. A winged cherub takes off toward the sky as a leafless tree shaped as a skull stands in the foreground. At the bottom of the illustration, among the ornaments, is the motto Fidesque coronat ad aras.

For this series of illustrations, the main figurative artwork was carried out by Charles Henry Bennett and the ornamental part by William Harry Rogers.
