USPERGETSIS.

l'ie volume from which this page has been reproduced was printed at Strasburg n 1537, and is considered to be one of the best specimens extant of the hooh, proluced by the Strasburg printers. The medallions of the Roman Emperors are treated with great knowledge of effect, and the drawing is correct and firm in imitation of antique modes. The effect of the black back-ground is particularly strikng, and the wreaths of oak-leaves, olive, and cther foliage, which frame the n. 'cialions, are conceived in the true spirit of similar features in classical art.
