Abstract :
History of Alciati's emblem, Adversus naturam peccantes, first published in the 1546 Venetian edition of the Emblemata, and of its occurrence in subsequent editions through 1692. Points out that although it was expurgated from some editions and included in its proper sequence in others, it also appeared in unobtrusive ways in many other editions; adds further examples to the list compiled by Hecksher, and draws attention to errors in Henry Green's account. Argues that the instability of the text and its reception reflect deeper anxieties on the part of the editors, printers, and publishers of the text, and point to issues of censorship and decorum close to the heart of emblematic composition. ;
