Hans Sachs, German Poet Meistersinger & Shoemaker. Copper Engraved Portrait.
1600 - Large "proof" 1st state example, with wide uncut margins and engraving set within these large borders. very Rare in this state. Tight laid lines in paper under light, no watermark noticed. Some surface dirt and marks in border area old light scuff and ink spots. not affecting the image. Measures: 31 x 20 cm in total and 12 x 8.5 cm image only. dated to c1590-1610 *This example is printed before any initials and or scrollwork signature that appears on later examples. Later copies online have this listed as a woodcut. This is, I believe, a copper engraved etching or dry-point. Rare and possibly unique in this state?
