Notes:

In this engraving from the title page, a two-faced woman uses a mirror to look safely at the medusa in the border of the picture. She is Prudence, trampling on Envy, a man with snakes instead of hair, lying on the ground. The motto, Invidiæ Prudentia Victrix is Latin for, Prudence defeats envy, or, prudence is the victress of envy.
