Commentary on Emblem 27
A modification of Greek
This emblem first appeared in the unauthorized edition of
1531. We give the illustration which first
appeared on sig A7r. In the first authorized edition of 1534 the illustration appeared on page 17.
There is a French translation of this emblem by Lefevre on page 13 of the
edition of 1536 at the Glasgow University emblem site. You
may compare the Latin and French in frames.
Geffrey Whitney's Choice of
Emblemes (1586) has an English imitation at page 19. You may compare the Latin
and Whitney's English in frames.
