Edward Farr, ed.  Select Poetry of the Reign of Queen Elizabeth.  1845.
De Microcosmo
XXXIV. T. Bastard
MAN 1 is a little world, and bears the face
And picture of the vniuersitie:
All but resembleth God, all but his glasse,
All but the picture of his maiestie:
  Man is the little world, (so we him call,)        5
  The world the little god, God the Great All.
Note 1. XXXIV. T. Bastard.—Wrote, and published in 1598, “Chrestoleros: seven bookes of Epigrames.” Many of these epigrams are addressed to the celebrated men living in the age of Elizabeth. [back]
