Comment: Hard cover Fine in fine dust jacket. Appears unread, clean and tight, in like new dust jacket. 120 p. With a storied past and a strong imperial presence, Augsburg enjoyed a golden age in the late fifteenth and early sixteenth century-fostering artists such as Hans Burgkmair, Erhard Ratdolt, Daniel Hopfer, Jorg Breu, and Hans Weiditz.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A handsome volume produced to accompany exhibit, shown at NGA in 2012, and elsewhere, of works from Augsburg, 1475 to 1540 under the Hapsburgs (Maximilian I, etc.)--how etching evolved from production of armor, the first chiaroscuro woodcut, book production, imperial patronage and propaganda. The book includes three informative essays, many illustrations, and handsome endpapers (details of illus.). Not all items in the exhibit are illustrated, and locating those that are requires some back and forth among the pages.It is not a large volume but is eminently readable.
