Description

A snake is coiled around a large stylized heart and holds an apple in its mouth. Below the picture two separate scrolls bear the inscription Totus mundus in maligno/Mali ligno positus est, which stands for Totus mundus in maligno positus est (The whole world is established inside the Devil).

For this series of illustrations, the main figurative artwork was carried out by Charles Henry Bennett and the ornamental part by William Harry Rogers.
