And at last he may happen to vent something that may cause his disgrace and downsall, as it has frequently been experience by other such malitious Wits in the like Cases; I believe it would be no small advantage to Pasquin's friends, if he had these words Engraven in his base, Emenda & hie £§ ibi vir esto.

About the Author:

WOLFRAM EBERHARD (1909-1989) was born in Germany traveled extensively in Asia; from 1948 to 1976, he was a professor of sociology at the University of California at Berkeley. Among his many works examining Chinese folklore, fiction, culture, and history are A Dictionary of Chinese Symbols and China's Minorities: Yesterday and Today.
