Two lovely Ballads

Friar, Rush Chronicle

Tuenne Skiøne Viser Den første Om Løgen oc Sandhed Den anden om Muncke Cappen (i.e. "two beautiful ballads, the first about lie and truth, the other about the monk cloak"). Copenhagen, 1547. The woodcut with the monk was used for Des Dodes Dantz, 1489, Dodendantz, 1520, and Copenhagen's dance of death. There's a larger version here: Ballads.
