Commentary on Emblem 55

This emblem first appeared in Alciato's second collection, the edition of 1546. We give the illustration which first appeared on folio 39v.

Geffrey Whitney's Choice of Emblemes (1586) has an English imitation at page 6. You may compare the Latin and Whitney's English in frames.
