Die Holzschnitte des Petrarca-Meisters zu Petrarcas Werk "Von der Artzney bayder Glück des guten und widerwärtigen" Augsburg 1532 Gebundene Ausgabe – 1955


Pictures from Von der Artzney bayder Glück des guten und widerwärtigen (Augsburg, 1532), made as woodcuts by Hans Weiditz the Younger, known as the Petrarch Master, or, in German, Petrarch Meister, because of his superb illustrations for a book by the 14th century Italian scholar Petrarch.

I have a fac-simile of the prints, not the original book. I got the edition I have in Prague.
