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.

    Amygdalus.

    The almond

    EMBLEMA CCVIII.

    Cur properans foliis praemittis amygdale flores?
    Odi pupillos praecocis ingenii.[1]

    Almond tree, why are you in such a hurry to put out flowers before your leaves? I hate precocious pupils.

    Notes:

    1.  See Quintilian (Fabius Quintilianus), Institutio oratoria, 1.3.3: “the precocious type of intellect never easily comes to fruition”.
