Catalogue Note

A reprint of the 1495 Furter edition of this collection of sermons, which had woodcuts by the Master of the Haintz-Narr; the woodblocks for this edition are close copies. The woodcuts show the influence of Dürer and of the illustrations for Brant's Das Narrenschiff (see lot 102 for the 1499 edition); Brant was a friend of Meder and wrote the verse preface for this work.
