Simon Vostre: The Shepherdess

King Toledo

By Simon Vostre. In this version from 1502, parts of the dialogue from the Danse Macabre of Paris is included, but only for the first of the three dancers on each page. In this case the two groups of 4 lines at the bottom, starting with Pas ne vous oblieray derriere and Aux camps nires plus soir, are Death's greeting to the shepherdess.
