- Curator's comments
- Note in Dodgson's hand on the folder, in which the set is kept:
'First published in Luther's Haus Postilla, printed for the successors of G. Rhau for Seelfisch, Wittenberg 1563. (304.h.9) Haus Postilla, S. Seelfisch, Wittenberg, 1582, contains this set of cuts, 83 in number, including a few repetitions.
The set was evidently not finished when the 1563 edition was published; it lacks 28 of the set which appear in the 1582 edition, their place being filled by old cuts, chiefly by Brosamer. The second cut in the 1563 edition is dated 1561. 1895,0420.158 is one of those that got published in 1563. On fol. 82v of the 1563 ed. the Temptation of Christ has the monogram CB after the mark 4+; it is quite distinct from the mark of the wood engraver CE, & appears to belong to the designer.'
