Caption: 'The Bleeding Beauty', a 17th century engraving by Arnoult. The physician tapes the woman's arm prior to blood letting, a procedure used to treat various ailments including corns on the feet. The rhyme beneath the illustration warns the doctor: 'In order to cure all the sufferings of this beautiful woman, your lancet is not enough; and if your heart is taken with her gentle charms, you will suffer more than she'.
