Le coin.

XXXVI.

Solon[1] veut que le coin à manger on presente
A la nouvelle espouse, à cause que plaisante
Link to an image of this page  Link to an image of this page  [N4r p199] Telle viande est en bouche, estomach, & haleine,
Ce qui les mariés à vraye amour ameine.

Commentaires.

Les mariés doyvent tellement confire tous leurs
dits & leurs faicts, que jamais il ne puisse advenir
entre eux aucun mauvais mesnage. C’est pourquoy
Solon commandoit à l’espouse, qu’elle mangeast un
coin avant de coucher avec son mari la premiere
nuict: à cause que ce premier plaisir, qui se recueille
de la voix & de la bouche, doit estre doux et bien
assaisonné.

    Picea.

    The spruce tree

    At picea emittat nullos quòd stirpe stolones:
    Illius est index, qui sine prole perit.

    But the spruce, because it sends up no shoots from its stock, is a symbol of the man who dies without progeny.
