EMBLEME XXI.

La concorde est la bien-seance de la doctrine
& la gloire en est la recompence.

Au S. Jehan Sambucus gentilhomme tresçavant.[1]

Les grues tiennent aus piedz
Un coeur eslevé de terre
Et en leurs becz alliez
La bague d’or se reserre.
La gloire est la recompence
Que lon donne ŕ la science:
Aus hommes de mesme coeur
Est seante la candeur.[2]

Notes:

1.  Sambucus (János Zsámboky), the Hungarian emblematicist. See his Emblemata (1564) and Les Emblčmes (1567) on this site. This woodcut of his family coat-of-arms is actually the same as the one used in Sambucus’ own work:, [FSAa143][FSAb145].
