Figvres de las Passion de Nostre Savver et Redempter Iesvs-Christ. Desseignées & grauées par Albert Dvrer, Alleman. Et Expliquées tres-elagamment en Latin & en Francois.
France No publisher c 1600 - Folio, 307 x 194 mms., consisting of undated title-page and sixteen plates, with the plates measuring 120 x 90 mms., with dates of 1504, 1507, 1508, 1512, etc., the plates having been excised from a printed book, mounted in a folding leaf open at top and bottom but closed on the sides, and placed by a former owner in a 17th century vellum binding; several of the plates have text on the verso, but the mounting makes it virtually impossible to read. Of the sixteen plates three have old tape marks the rest are good to very good, some lightly inked but, overall a good set This is the complete "Engraved Passion" of Albrecht Durer, printed in what appears to be an unrecorded French edition. There is no record of any edition of these plates with this title. All editions are very rare. Most were broken up in the eighteenth century for their plates. The title page appears to be the only evidence of the existence of this edition.
