Anton Sorg, C I R C A 1 4 7 6 Only the wooden printing block is included in this sale. I DO NOT own the woodcut leaf (print) pictured in this listing. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire a 496 year old German Renaissance printing wood block engraved by a master German formschneider used to illustrate a religious tract, bible or broadside in 1521. The woodblock measures (5.2 by 4.4 INCHES) and just under one inch thick. The printing block has minor material loss to the lower right hand corner and several age related cracks throughout the wood block. Included is a post-lifetime hand burnished proof impression of the wood block on a buff paper that show only "very slight" variances from the original lifetime impressions of the early 16th. century. Close examination does show variant details, pock marks and wear to xylographic features caused by later "adjustments" from other hands and formschneiders re-engraving the worn or compressed areas of the wood block to extend the life of the printing block and its use in the letter press. The woodblock is guaranteed authentic as described or all money refundedincluded taxes and VAT fees if not satisfied. Global shipping free of charge. Publisher: Anton Koberger, Region: Europe, Place of Publication: Nuremberg, Author: Jacobus de Voragine, Language: German, Special Attributes: Illustrated, Date of Publication: 1488
