"Many of these woodcuts were so delicately cut, that the blocks soon became worn. The 'first impressions' of such woodcuts were undoubtedly the best" (Savage 127).
Pietro Andrea Mattioli's (1500–77) Herbarz (1562) was one of the most significant editions of Mattioli's commentary on Dioscorides (circa A.D. 40–90). It is also one of scarcest herbals, with less than a handful of copies extant in North America.
Giorgio Liberale was an Italian artist from Udine who had been working for the imperial court in Prague. In this role he produced some 600 large blocks that were used in the Prague edition of Matthioli’s Herbal. The work resulted in some of the finest woodcuts of any herbal produced in any century.

Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.Je pensais recevoir 2 gravures identiques étant donné le titre mais je n'en ai eu qu'une seule. Le titre ne correspond apparemment pas à la description.
Sinon j'en suis contentThe title states that there are only 2 other known examples of this work on record (Bibliographically), not that there are two woodcuts on offer. Thank you for bidding with us.
