EMBLEMA CLXVII [=166] .

In garrulum & gulosum.

Against a noisy and gluttonous fellow

Voce boat torva, praelargo est gutture, rostrum
Instar habet nasi multiforisque[1] tubae.
Deformem rabulam, addictum ventrique gulaeque
Signabit, volucer c¨m truo pictus erit.

It screams with a harsh cry, it has an enormous throat, a beak like a spout or a many-holed trumpet. The pelican bird, when painted, will indicate an ugly ranter, enslaved to lust and belly.

Das CLXVII [=166] .

Wider ein schwetzigen und fressigen.

Wann man den Vogel Sack gantz malt
So mit eim langen Hal▀ ist gstalt
Und hat ein Esels gpler und gschrey
Ein Schnabel der geformiert sey
Link to an image of this pageá Link to an image of this page á[Q1r f108r] Wie ein Posaun oder Trommet
Ein Zungen Drescher bedeutet
Der darzu den Bauch und das Maul
Zu kr÷pffen und zfŘlln nicht ist faul.

Notes:

1. áThe errata suggest ‘multivorisque’, but this reading is not supported by other editions.
