From LIVIUS, Titus (59 B.C.-17 A.D.). Romische Historie usz Tito livio gezogen. Translated from Latin into German by Bernhard Schöfferlin and Ivo Wittich. Mainz: Johannes Schoeffer, 1514.

Gothic type.

28.3 x 18 cm

Clear woodcuts reflected in their excellence and deep impression.

Fine woodcut

Although the woodcuts resemble the work of the Late Master of the Grüninger workshop, who illustrated Grüninger's 1502 Virgil, they are probably not from that atelier, since Grüninger's own edition of this translation of Livy, published in 1507, used a different series of illustrations by the Grüninger Master himself.
