VISUAL RHETORIC AND EARLY MODERN ENGLISH LITERATURE. Katherine Acheson. Ashgate Publishing, Farnham/Burlington, 2013. Material Readings in Early Modern Culture. 186 pp. with 40 ills. 24 x 16 cm. LC 2012-47026 ISBN 9780754662839 In English.
Publisher's description: Considering the variety of charts, diagrams and other kinds of images with which early modern printed books are copiously illustrated, this volume interrogates how visual rhetoric affected verbal expression. The genres of illustration considered include military strategy and tactics, garden design, instrumentation, Bibles, scientific schema, drawing instruction, natural history, comparative anatomy and Aesop's Fables. The book develops novel methods of using printed images as evidence in the interpretation of the rich, strange and beautiful literature of early modern England.
