Comments

Facsimile of the 1498 German edition (it was published also in Latin in the same year) from the copy in the British Museum. In his introduction, Erwin Panofsky describes Durer's Apocalypse as ". . . the earliest book designed and published by an artist as exclusively his own undertaking." Durer's woodcuts depict the martyrdom of St. John as told in the book of Revelations. Edition of 535 numbered copies, this #517.
