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.

    The quince

    EMBLEMA CCIV.

    Poma novis tribui debere Cydonia nuptis
    Dicitur antiquus constituisse Solon.[1]
    Grata ori & stomacho cùm sint, ut & halitus illis
    Sit suavis, blandus manet & ore lepos.

    Solon of old is said to have ordained that quinces be given to newly-weds, since these are pleasant both to mouth and stomach. As a result their breath is sweet, and winning grace drops from their lips.

    Notes:

    1.  antiquus...Solon, ‘Solon of old’. See Plutarch, Coniugalia praecepta, Moralia 138 D.
