Hello and welcome!
Thank you for visiting our siteTuscany Books offers:
A rare incunable leaf from a fragment of the important medieval work Ship of Fools :
Lyon: Sacon, 6.28, 1488 (recte 1498 [ the first edition was done in 1494]).
The design of this woodcut is ascribed to Albrecht Duerer (1471-1528)
If you google Sebastian Brant and Ship of Fools, you will find that the University of Houston Libraries will provide you with a link that will give scholarly discussions on the attribution of the woodcuts in the book. (I would give you the link, but eBay does not allow that)
A little research on Google to see what dealers are asking for similar Duerer woodcuts from the Ship of Fools will convince you that this would be an excellent chance for you to get a fine art object at a reasonable price.(We have found less desirable, later woodcuts for over $2000 per woodcut).
