The wood engraving is from Ludolphus de Saxonia, ‘Dit es dleué ons liefs heeren ihesu christi’. Anonymous Dutch translation. Published in Antwerp in 1503 or later.
The national museum of Amsterdam has a(n earlier?) variant of this print in its collection (Object no. RP-P-OB-2009) gives the date of 1480- 1500 and/or 1503 for her print. The wood engraving in this auction is possibly from one of the later editions as the pinnacles of the edge decoration have sometimes been replaced by a type of arabesques.
Incunable made shortly after the invention of book printing. The first publication was in 1488. Wood engravings were possibly already used in earlier Dutch works. Some wood engravings are known to have been first used in Gouda, The Netherlands and later also in Antwerp, by both Gheraert and Claes Leeu, in 1487 and 1488 respectively.
