Rothenburg - Don't Owe *Him* Money

An original illustration (bottom right, from 1550) of why you don't borrow money. The council of the city of Eisleben borrowed a large sum of money from one Hilber von Schlannewitz and failed to repay it. This 'shame' letter was displayed publicly, calling all of the men names and showing them hung, beheaded, and performing acts of bestiality. The illustration on the bottom left is for another group of debtors.
