The Dance of Death, by Hans Holbein

XXX.

The Shipman

Der Schiffmann.

Qui volunt diuites fieri incidunt in laqueum diaboli, & desideria multa, & nociua, quæ mergunt homines in interitum. — I. Ad Timo. vi.

THE SHIPMAN.
Death breaks the mast of the ship, and the crew are in extremity.

Pour acquerir des biens mondains

Vous entrez en tentation,

Qui uous met es perilz soubdains,

Et uous maine a perdition.
