Catalogue Note

For the original German edition of the woodcuts, see lot 218. This is one of several editions printed by Wechel in the 1530s, and the woodcuts here were previously used in his 1532 edition. According to Mortimer, these blocks are close copies of Heinrich Steiner's cuts for the 1529 Augsburg edition, which were themselves taken from the original Erfurt edition.
