"Method of this work: literary montage. I have nothing to say only to show" --Walter Benjamin

Der Doctor Schnabel von Rom[1] (1656) is the title of an engraving by Paul Fürst.
The German title translates as (“Doctor Beak of Rome”) and depicts a man in a plague doctor costume. The engraving features a satirical Latin/German macaronic poem (‘Vos Creditis, als eine Fabel, / quod scribitur vom Doctor Schnabel’) roughly meaning “funny tale is disclosed, / by a doctor with big nose.”
