Titlepages from the Principia, Arcana, and Conjugial Love

Hi folks —

As discussed in the mini-lecture, here are the images I want you to be keeping in mind, and thinking about Swedenborg’s presentations of himself (as author, as exegete, as man of science, etc) in his day, in his published work. It’s easier for me to put the images here in a separate post on the front page, rather than as embedded images in comments below the minlecture video. The first two images are taken from the Principia–the title page with its grandiloquent authorial presentation, and accompanying portrait–the later images are all pages of the first editions of the Arcana and Conjugial Love.
