Shakespeare's engraving portrait of the Second Edition of Shakespeares Sonnets (1640) is mirrored compared to The First Folio Portrait.
The editor of this second Edition, John Benson is also mirrored, compared to Ben Jonson of the First Folio.
The shade of the head is illuminated, compared to normal shades.
The laurel does not wreath the poets forehead compared to real poets such as Ben Jonson) .
and so on , and so on.....
The significance of these linguistic and pictorial Antics - in 1640 can only be understood, if you take the contemporary Shakespeare authorship situation into consideration:
It is not the man on the figure but his famous shadow who has written the sonnets.
The man illustrated on this figure is no poet, he is not allowed to be wreathed with a laurel on his fronthead, but only to hold the laurel in his gloved hands.
"Nature" (Shakspere/Stratford) joy'd to wear the dressing of his (Shakespeare/alias Marlowe's) lines.

(333) Shakespeare Authorship Inconsistencies: - W.Begley: "I suggest Bacon until the veritable author be clearly discovered!"
1589 1593 1594
It is hard to imagine that Shakespeare, out of nowhere in his 30th year of life wrote his perfect masterpiece opus.1 "Venus and Adonis". The work was printed by Richard Field who ,years ago, had moved from Stratford to London. Field had already printed in 1588 for William Cecil "The Copy of a Letter sent out of England to Don Bernardin Mendoza". A close relationship between him and Cecil must have existed:"The Arte of English Poesie" (1589) of an obscure anonymous author begins with an impressive dedication (by a certain R.F. - Richard Field?) to William Cecil ...and the Queen. -
Strange to say for a long time Stratfordian experts tell the world that George Puttenham was the author of "The Arte of English Poesie". In his 3 volume book (1905) Walter Begley strongly disagreed with this view:
Walter Begley(1905): "...To sum up the case for the Puttenhams. It seems as if George could not possibly be responsible for ›The Arte of English Poesie‹ (…) I therefore suggest Bacon as a working hypothesis, until the veritable author be clearly discovered."
Does anybody really believe that within a short time span an obscure, anonymous author (using the same title-Emblem, the same Printer than the author of "V&L" and "Lucrece", linked to William Cecil) wrote one of the most sophisticated non-fiction book about the "Art of English Poesy" (at the climax of the life of dramatist and poet Shakespeare....) and that no better working hypothesis of the veritable author could be discovered?
