The Abraham Cowley Text and Image Archive


Thumbnails Version / No Thumbnails

This section of the Cowley image-archive is partly inspired by John Ogilby's 1662 iconographic memorial for Charles II's coronation festivities, in which the ideologically charged imagery of ancient numismatics constitutes a prime basis for Charles II's own iconography of kingly legitimacy. Entries herein appear in the order in which they impinge on the sense of Plantarum (click here for a searchable list of the Latin line-numbers with keyed images). Items imaged in this section were the editor's.
