  • This work, along with Dürer's Apocalipsis cum figuris and his Epitome in Divae Parthenices Mariae historiam, which he describes in his Netherlands journal as "die grossen Bücher," were originally issued together in 1511, and some copies survive thus; but they are more usually found separately. See Catalogue of early German and Flemish woodcuts (Dodgson), cited below, no. 6.
