The image of the fox, which symbolises a crafty Venetian gentleman in the play, comes from an illuminated manuscript held by Cambridge University Library. John Goodwin, then the NT’s head of publications, found the picture in T H White’s translation of The Book of Beasts (1954). The source image was reproduced in the Volpone programme with a quotation from the book.
