Depicting the exchange between Death and the Pedlar, this illustration is associated traditionally with the text

shown below.



Death to the Pedlar:

Well the, Pedlar, you of little coin,

You people-swindler and street-crier.

You must now come with me from here,

Leave your shoddy goods for somebody else.

The Pedlar:

I have passed through the world,

And have received all kinds of monies.

Many thalers, coins, corns and guilders,

Oh murder, who will now pay me the amount owing?
