Book the First. Emblem VIII. A skeleton in a jester’s outfit stands by a freshly dug grave and lifts a laughing mask from his face, unveiling his grimacing skull. A scroll in the decoration bears the motto Et risu necat (and laughter kills).
For this series of illustrations, the main figurative artwork was carried out by Charles Henry Bennett and the ornamental part by William Harry Rogers.
