Description

Emblem from Barthélemy Aneau’s Picta poesis, Lyons, Macé Bonhomme, 1552. The image printed is from a reused woodblock owned by the publisher, Bonhomme. The text below is about 'INDOCILE ingenium' or 'unteachable ingenium', highlighting that it is a waste of time to teach ingenium, which is something given by nature - just as it is a waste of time to try to teach an ass how to be a horse.
