This wood engraving illustration comes from the book entitled Quarles' Emblems that was illustrated by Henry Rogers and Chalres Bennett. There is little information available on both artists. A snake is coiled around a large stylized heart and holds an apple in its mouth. Below the picture two separate scrolls bear the inscription Totus mundus in maligno/Mali ligno positus est, which stands for Totus mundus in maligno positus est (The whole world is established inside the Devil).
