Larry Weiss writes that "The label says that the picture was 'taken' in
1603.  Was that usage of the verb common in the early 17C?"

I'm not sure about "common," and I haven't been able to find the phrase
in OED (but then, there are 14 pages of entries for "take").  But I am
persuaded that the phrase was used.

The 'new portrait' looks just like the 'Grafton' portrait and/or a
cunningly made 'young' Shakespeare made retrospectively from the
Droeshout Folio print.

But isn't there a Saunder in A Shrew and there is a Saunder in the plot
of Seven Deadly Sins. Both plays Pembrokes Men? Saunder = Sander?

Dave Kathman please...

Cheers,
Marcus.
