1 leaf.An rare engraved print (an illustrated flier or Flugschrift) reporting the surgical removal of a large calciferous growth from the elbow of Hans Adam Praunfalcken (1604-1655), Freyherrn zu Neuhaus. The illustrations of the removed growth's exterior and interior are apparently original size and have bars indicating the three dimensions (4.8×2.2×1.6 cm): it weighed, together with some smaller pieces, 1.5 Lot (more than 26 grams). Besides the title and the captions for the two illustrations, the flier includes a two-line Latin epithet and a 4-line German verse. With a violet ink stamp in the foot margin and on the back of the backing paper ("Sammlung Hans Hopf"). With the margins trimmed approximately to the plate edge without affecting the texts or images. There is a faint stain along the let edge, but the flier is otherwise in very good condition.l Drugulin, Historischer Bilderatlas, II (1867), 2399; C.G. Müller, Verzeichnis von Nünbergischen topographisch-hitorischen Kupferstichen und Holzschnitten (1791), p. 205.
