Many plates with paper pasted over the surrounding text, some plates with individual scenes outlined and numbered in red pencil; these numbers seem to correspond to notes on the back of the plates, written in Spanish, which explain what each one of the scenes represents. First edition. One of a series of German Biblical ?Bilderbuchs? from the period, with extremely detailed engravings, all of which are present and intact, though many have pasted paper coverings and annotations. (Last copy sold at auction: Christie?s, Rome, 12 December 2002). This copy may have been marked up for reproduction in some way or another.
