China Monumentis by Athanasius Kircher

From the title pages. All of Kircher’s illustrations fascinate for their detail and often bizarre or startling images. The high quality scans of his 1667 opus, China Monumentis, at VTS don’t disappoint, especially in the close-ups. Chinese mythology. Elsewhere on { feuilleton } • The etching and engraving archive
