Commentary Printer's emblem.
A palm tree whose branches are caught by a man holding a spade (allegory of Work?) and by a woman with an anchor and holding a hawk (allegory of Hope).
Between them, a falconry gauntlet with a hawk and the inscription "POST TENEBRAS SPERO LUCEM" (After darkness, await light).
The gauntlet, the hawk and the inscription are elements also in Juan de la Cuesta's emblem in Madrid: Juan de la Cuesta, 1605.
