To the moste honorable, and woorthie brothers [dedication]
To the moste honorable, and woorthie brothers,
Earle of Penbroke
, and Philip
Earle of Mountgomerie
patrons of learning and cheualrie.
So it is most honorable, that fame flying ouer the seas , out of your British Ile ; hath left
vnto our spatious continent the reporte of your honors woorthynesse : and therefore in my self a desyre to do your honors
such seruice as might bee vvorthie your esteem. But seeing no occasion hath concurred vvhereby I might haue bin so fortunate
as by you to bee comaunded , I haue presumed to make demonstration of my redynesse therevnto, by dedicating vnto your honors
(for your recreation) these my inuented emblemes of that subiect, that subiecteth princes no lesse then subiects. Vouchsafe
my Lordes to bee honored from these forreyn partes by a stranger, vvho to serue your honors in the best partes he hath, vvill
make himself no stranger.
Thus in all dutifull respect I kisse your honors handes from Antvverp this.20.
