The Dance of Death, by Hans Holbein

XLIII.

The Gamester

Quid prodest homini, si vniuersum Mundum lucretur, animæ autem suæ detrimentum patiatur? — Matt. xvi.

THE GAMESTER.
Death and the Devil seize upon the Gambler at his cards.

Que vault à l’homme tout le Monde

Gaigner d’hazard, & chance experte,

S’il recoit de sa uie immonde

Par Mort, irreparable perte?
