Images from Dirck Pietersz. Pers “Bachus wonder-werken” (1628)


The three images in this post come from Dirck Pietersz. Pers’ Bachus wonder-werken Vaer in het recht gebruyck en misbryck des Wyns (1628).  In this book, Dirck Pietersz. Pers (1581 – 1659) recounts that wine drives away sadness, worries, and pain but the central point is that it must be taken in moderation. [0]

“There sat a proud lion, who wanted to feed all the people he ruled over, and kingly areas, all the sweet mistress and all the fears” [1]

“the smoke was unprecedented” [1]

“keeps my drunkenness alive” [1]
