Notes:

Chapter headpieces like this were very popular in the eighteenth century; they remained in widespread use into the early 20th century as a low-cost way to make a book appear more expensive than it really was. There was quite a market in the engraved printing-blocks such as the one used to make the impression which I scanned here.

If you can identify the musical instruments please leave a comment!
