This chapter focuses on Geoffrey Whitney's book A Choice of Emblemes and other devices. It explains that the book consisted of a large number of allegorical pictures interpreted in verse and followed a Continental fashion which had quickly grown in popularity since the appearance of the first emblem book. Whitney's book suggested that Edward Paston was in some way connected with Edward Dyer and helped confirm Paston's association with William Byrd.

Keywords:   Geoffrey Whitney, Choice of Emblemes, allegorical pictures, verse, Edward Paston, Edward Dyer, William Byrd
