EMBLEME XIII.

La prudence joincte avecque la force.

A excellent S. Philippes Cobel conseiller du Roy.[1]

Mercure se tient droit joinct avecq la vielesse.
La force est indomptable avecque la sagesse:
Mais sans elle, elle va tousjours se consumant,
Et ne peut demourer jamais asurement.

Notes:

1. áPhilipp Cobelius, royal counsellor in the Netherlands, has not been further identified. He is likely to be a relative of Arnold Cobelius, treasurer of the County of Holland, to whom this book is dedicated.
