2 Blismon. [Bloquet, Simon-François] Physiologie Complète du Rébus. Ouvrage Illustré Par 800 petites Figures, Et rédigé
Paris Chez Delarue Wraps Good 
N.d., circa 1842. 12mo. 15 by 10 cm. 169, [1], [10] pp. Each page is printed with a decorative frame. Throughout are woodcut vignettes. This is a visual dictionary of sorts -- one geared to solving rebus puzzles. Besides these pictograms, the diminutive book comes with a history of rebuses and plenty of examples and instructions on how to solve these often tricky puzzlers. In addition, there is a two page section on the manual alphabet used in sign language. To our knowledge, this is a most unusual reference, the only one of which we are aware to aid in the solution of rebuses, and it is also quite scarce. Scattered foxing. Spine cracked but still holding.
