Description :The representation of the town of Valetta on Malta
Meisner added in its center point a metaphorical representation of a medical doctor speaking out a baroque sentence of a neo stoical inspiration written in elegiac couplets: Scis Medicum Medicum venerare et subitus adora: Hinc tibi propitio fato fiducia major.
Which means: If you happened to know some physician. Have for him proper respect and make him a courtesy: And he will, with help of luck, assist you well in case of need.
Or paraphrased in German: Der Artzt solst gesschaffen ist, Darumb ehr ihn zu aller frift. Es kompt die Zeit du ruft ihn ahn, als dann Er dir wirt beystand than.
The poet Daniel Meisner from Komotau started his Thesaurus Philo-Politicus. Das ist Politisches Schatzkästlein guter Herren und bestendiger Freund… in Frankfurt in 1623, initially in parts, each one containing about fifty plans. The work was printed work and was printed by Eberhard Kieser. In 1678 the collection of copperplates was sold to Paul Fü, who continued the printing under the title Sciographia
