Hi Jean-Yves,

A cursory sweep of the net for "Erhard Ratdolt" points to his being one of the first printers to use a decorative title-page. Perhaps it will turn out that the "cat and mouse (rat)" device is actually Ratdolt's pseudo-heraldic pun on his own name. :-)

If so, it would seem extremely likely that this is what WMV was (implicitly) referring to in his own pseudo-heraldry. :-)

Happy hunting!, .....Nick Pelling.....
