Notes:

The Story of the Rose was a very popular mediæval French story about chivalry and knightly love. Here we have an engraving based on a painting in one particular manuscript copy made in about A.D. 1500. There’s some word-play going on: the walled garden is owned by one M. Déduit; the man’s name istself means “pleasure.” We see the wingéd God of Love in the background.

The manuscript is in the British Library today: overview and image of the painting
