  1. Progressive insight:
    Not from the library of Charles III de Croÿ.

    Shield: Horne. Maarten Count of Horne and Berghes-St. Winock, Baron Van Gaasbeek (1510-1570)
    Lozenge: Horne/De Croÿ en Flandre. Anne de Croÿ Chimay (ca. 1522-1573)

    The medallion with the mule remains unclear, possibly a personal device?
