Description: This printer's device by Christoph Endters, 1632-1674, illustrates a life lived with perserverance by the figures representing Truth and Justice placing a crown on a skull. The Latin inscription above the device "Persevera usque ad finem et coronaberis" translates "Persevere until the end and you shall be given a crown" (cf. Revelation 2:10). A Latin motto beneath the device "Assuesce et persiste" also states "Become accustomed and persist".
