A WIDE VARIETY of BEAUTIFUL and INTERESTING ENGRAVINGS. These pictures (VIGNETTES) are WONDERFUL EXAMPLES of the ENGRAVING ART in the MODERN WORLD. Let me start you on a DELIGHTFUL JOURNEY into the HISTORY of MYTHOLOGY, SYMBOLISM and AMERICANA.
The Vignettes are taken from UNITED STATES STOCKS & BONDS, as well as from a number of FOREIGN COUNTRIES. Many of them present a Study of TRAINS & LOCOMOTIVES covering more than 150 YEARS! Others provide enchanting illustrations of MYTHOLOGICAL and ALLEGORICAL Figures: Mercury, Vulcan & Athena; Science, Art & Technology; Liberty, Justice & Law.
An extensive INDEX & CROSS-REFERENCE will help to guide your journey through the HUNDREDS of ILLUSTRATIONS that will be available here, for your Study, Amusement and Edification.
*** Some years back I wrote a book on this and related matters of Symbolism or "Metaphor": The Metaphorical Basis of Language: A Study in Cross-Cultural Linguistics or THE LEFT-HANDED HUMMINGBIRD by E. Morgan Kelley, Ph.D. (Edwin Mellen Press, 1992). I have also had scholarly articles on these topics published around the world - from Europe and the Americas to China - and taught at the University Level for Decades.
