Description

Photograph of interior of Orbis Sensualium Pictus (The Pictured World), Johann Amos Comenius, London: John Sprint, 1705. Scan of page 4. Page is mottled cream paper with black serif type, featuring a column of copperplate engraving illustrations (e.g. crow, lamb, grasshopper, etc.) printed on the left in narrow rectangles, divided by thin black borderlines. Corresponding pairs of short lines in Latin and English are listed in the page’s central column. The Latin lines are in letterpress serif type and the English lines are in blackletter serif type immediately below. On the far right side, a thin descending line is alphabetically annotated by letters “A” through “L,” with phonetic spellings of the letter pronunciations in italicized type nearby. Each letter can be found at the beginning of a word in its corresponding pair of Latin or English type. (There is no pair of lines for the letter “J,” as there is no “J” in the common Latin alphabet.). Page laid on black background.
