The Temple of Muses



In 1733, French illustrator Bernard Picart produced a book called Neueröffneter Musen-Tempel, (Temple of the Muses) with 60 copperplate engravings, mostly illustrating stories from Ovid's Metamorphoses. The image here shows Hercules fighting the Hydra. See 16 of those engravings at BibliOdyssey. Link
