FIRST EDITION. One of the most beautiful German woodcut books of the 16th century, and the first with illustrations by Hans Schäufelein, illustrated by artist from Dürer's atelier and printed for Pinder, physician of the city of Nuremberg since 1493, by his son in law the Nuremberg printer and bookseller Friedrich Peypus. The richly illustrated work is reminiscent of the Nuremberg Chronicle and the Schatzbehalter. 300 of the woodcuts in the first volume are attributed to Hans Schäufelein, the full-page woodcut of the Crucifixion is attributed to Hans Baldung Grien. "Not surprisingly, many of these woodcuts were influenced by Dürer's drawings and prints. For instance, Baldung's Crucifixion derives in part from Dürer's 1505 drawings of Christ and the two thieves. Yet Baldung skillfully blended these figures into a highly personalized composition that emphasized the event's emotional drama" (Smith). Dark impressions of the woodcut and text. The imprint is in the second volume. VD 16 P 2806; BM/STC 596; Fairfax/Murray, German 332; Dodgson I, 10,1; Muther 896; See Smith Nuremberg a Renaissance City 1500-1618 Austin, 1983, 40.
