Nine articles anchor the latest issue, discussing such aspects as emblems and the ages of life: defining the self in early modern France; the Falkland Jacket: sources, provenance, and interpretation of an emblematic artifact; Elizabeth Stuart's representation in the emblematic tradition; and the Sheldon "Four Seasons" tapestries at Hatfield House as a 17th-century example of significant emblematic decoration in the English decorative arts. Two documentation pieces look at Alciato and the Greek Anthology, and the occurrences of the word emblema in printed works before Alciato. Nine recent books are reviewed and critiqued. Miscellaneous matter includes research reports, note, queries, and notices.
