Full Description

Oblong small folio. (4)pp, 10 woodcut plates of ornament. Preserved in board folder. No ownership inscription, but Wolfgang Herrmann’s copy.

These plates were published in an obviously very limited number of copies for the Friends of the Staatliche Kunstbibliothek in Berlin. One copy in NUC (Fine Arts Library, Harvard Univ).
