Gutknecht, 1521. 40 nn. Bll. Prints around 1900. Brunet III, 1559. - Rosenthal 135, 1494a. - With stamp and cancellation stamp of the royal museums (1881). - VD 16, G 979, Muther 1253 - Only edition of this beautiful sequence of the cross, probably by the Nuremberg painter and woodcutter Erhard Schön. "The woodcuts depicting the 17 stations always take up the whole page and have the characteristic feature that the figures always stand in ornate surroundings on decorated wall columns ... the pedestal takes up two thirds of the whole, the figurative representation one third. It seems that the draughtsman used the so-called cloister, which can be seen in Nuremberg on the way to the churchyard in St. Johannis, as a model" (Cf. Muther.) - Only minimally browned.
