The painter Gerbrand van den Eeckhout acted as the designer for several print series showing cartouches and decorative art objects in the Auricular Style. This particular series of cartouches was aimed at an international audience and three different title pages were made to accompany the prints. This is the title page in Latin, which could have served a vast audience as Latin was still one of the most important universal languages across Europe at this time. It was also the language of learned society, and the inclusion of a Latin title page might thus reveal something of the pretenses of Van Eeckhout and his publisher Clement de Jonghe.
