Research Links - Money Changer's Stick-Purse

This is a link dump of URLs for paintings, woodcuts and other illustrations of the stick-purse for ease of printing later. Some may go a bit later than period but I'll pick and choose what I use once I'm pulling together my documentation. A lot of these sources will likely be similar to those that Mistress Elizabeth has used for her class notes.

Post-period (dated 1662)

2) The Rich Man from the Parable (Moneychanger)

3) The Moneylender

4) The Miser

6) The Moneychanger and His Wife

8) Beware of Luxury

10) Woodcuts & Pictures of Extant Examples
