Pictures from Moderne Kunst in Meister-Holzshnitten (Modern Art in Master Woodcuts), Berlin, 1895.

I bought this enourmous book from Antikvariát Dlážděná in Prague in 2016. It’s an “elephant folio” with pages measuring 410×290mm (roughly 11½×16 inches), including many engravings that fill the page or even double-page spreads and fold-outs.

Despite the title, the images are probably engraved on metal, because wood this size was hard to work with.

The date 1895 for this book is provisional; it could be a couple of years on either side.
