Description

Book the Second. Emblem III. A Cupid-like figure pulls on a fishing net in which a fish with a human jester’s head is caught. On a scroll unfolding among the ornaments is the motto Non amat iste sed hamat amor.

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