La Grande Danse Macabre, Troyes

l'Aucteur Pope & Emperor

One of the idiosyncrasies of the Danse Macabre books published in Troyes is that right before the dead king and the authority finishes the dance, the dance is interrupted by black man blowing a horn illustrating two poems: Dictz des Trespassez and Rondeau. There's a larger version here: Cry de mort.
