Summary/Abstract: The vast majority of the article consists of critical editions of two previously unknown Old Polish collections of nuptial emblems. They draw on the symbolism of popular love emblematics from Dutch cycles by Daniel Heisnius, Otto van Veen and Jacob Cats. In 17th-century Poland these cycles were imitated by only two poets, Stanisław Herakliusz Lubomirski and an anonymous author of inscriptions in a copy of Jacob Cats Silenus Alcibiadis. The texts published in this paper are a miscellaneous collection of subscriptiones, the main purpose of which was a fuction of rhetoric embellishments in wedding speeches.
