Black-and-white woodcut and text from Panoplia omnium illiberalium, the Latin edition of Das Ständebuch (The Book of Trades) with text by Hans Sachs and illustrations by Jost Amman. The book describes trades practiced in 16th-century Nuremberg. In English, the text reads : "I'm called a Jew because, in dearth, / Pledge I pawn at half its worth; / If not redeemed on time, it will / Make my profits higher still. / I thus destroy all carless folk, / While they eat and drink and joke. / My business never suffers, for / I have many brothers more."
