I found this today in a pamphlet I got at a museum lecture.

It's from Albrecht Dürer, and was written in 1511.

I'm gonna print it in some kind of old style script and hang it on the wall in our gallery.

He wrote:

Hold! You crafty ones, strangers to work, and pilferers of other men's brains. Think not rashly to lay your thievish hands upon my works. Beware! Know you not that I have a grant from the most glorious Emperor Maximillian, that not one throughout the imperial dominion shall be allowed to print or sell fictitious imitations of these engravings? Listen! And bear in mind that if you do so, through spite or through covetousness, not only will your goods be confiscated, but your bodies also placed in mortal danger.
