Subject: Faustus Titlepage Question
I'm preparing a lecture on Doctor Faustus. Could someone please tell me
what the object in the top right hand corner of the B-text titlepage is?
The one next to the books. Is it a patten? A picture? Surely not a
compass? I seem to recall reading an explanation somewhere, perhaps by
Stephen Orgel, but I'm damned, as it were, if I can place it now.
Thanks for any help,
