Twelve years after the death of Francois Rabelais, 1490-1553, there appeared a volume of illustrations translated to: The humorous dreams of Pantagruel, wherein are contained many figures from the imagination of master Francois Rablelais: & his last work, for the amusement of good spirits. The exact meaning is unclear, but they were believed to be political and satirical.
