Klappentext

Excerpt from Catalogue of Early German and Flemish Woodcuts, Vol. 1: Preserved in the Department of Prints and Drawings, in the British Museum

The following volume, compiled by Mr. Campbell Dodgson, is the first of a systematic catalogue of the collection of early German, Dutch, and Flemish woodcuts preserved in the Department of Prints and Drawings at the British Museum. Throughout the age of the Renaissance and Reformation, the craft of the wood - engraver took a place ow7 second to that of the letterpress printer as an instrument of popular culthre in Europe and its productswere far more numerous. And important in German lands than in any others. The British Museum' collection is very rich in all this Iolass of work, standing perhaps second only, in the combination of quantity with quality, to that of the Museum at Berlin. Much of its excellence is due to the recent benefaction of Mr. William Mitchell, who in 1895 presented to the Trustees a series of some twelve hundred choice proof and other woodcuts, chie y by Durer and his contemporaries, which it had been for more than twenty years his chief occupation to collect. The prints presented by Mr. Mitchell have now been incorporated with the general collection, and will be found described in their places in the following catalogue: a separate list of them will'be added at the end of the work.
