Commentary on Emblem 27

A modification of Greek Anthology 16.223.

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.
