Re: Venus' Looking Glass...?

HI ALL :-)

For what it's worth, I too ~recall SEEING~ that "thousand-eyed"
gallows, but actually it was more like 9-12 looping EYE's on the
gallows in the upper left (START) corner, 
If I was "ES" I would suggest one CRUMPLES UP any KEY s/he WAS using
hereto for and start anew with the NEXT ~folding code(s) KEY~

If it's KNOWN this is a START PAGE - might'n that be helpful??

Best to you & yours

 It's a monochrome VMS image I downloaded from the Net, but Google's image 
 search can't find it - so neither can I. (Bah!) :-(
 FYI: it has the many-eyed gallows in the top left, but the bulk of the page 
 consists (on the right) of a plant with bare roots at the bottom, five 
 leaves (or petals?) in the middle, and what may be some kind of thorn (?) 
 at the top, extending out of the. It's on the left of a folio (hence the 
 lack of a number).
 When I saw the five-petalled flower of Venus' Looking Glass (both in your 
 image and others), I was stylistically reminded of this page, but don't 
 know its foliation reference. :-(
 Thanks, .....Nick Pelling.....
