Engraving. Plate 184 x 140mm. 7¼ x 5½".
Published in Isaac Bullart's 'Académie des Sciences et des Arts'. Andre Tiraqueau (c.1480-1558) was the famous friend and protector of Rabelais. He was a magistrate in the Parlement de Paris, and wrote two influential treatises; "de legibus connubialibus" (1513), and "de nobilitate" (1549). The former is still in debate today, as the prompt to the discussion surrounding the role and status of women.
