Subject:        Ducks and Rabbits in Early Modern England

Dear list members,

Can you help?

A friend of mine is looking for early modern examples of those optical
illusions in which you can see a picture of two different things
simultaneously, e.g. like the famous picture of the duck and the rabbit.
problem is that he doesn't know

   (a) What these pictures are actually called
   (b) If there are any surviving examples of them from the early modern

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance,
David Nicol
