Title within ornate architectural border and 38 woodcuts in the text within a border of type ornaments, text and illustrations printed on the versos only, rectos blank save for the border. A-K1-4, L1-2. Complete. Book edition, 1604, published under the wrong title, of the bookseller G.L. Froben from Hamburg. The series 'Sündenfall und Erlösung des Menschengeschlechtes' by Albrecht Altdorfer was first published 1513 in form of single woodcuts, sometimes as a series in an album or a book. When the Froben-edition was published 1604, 38 of the 40 wood blocks had been left. This edition was provided with borders and sentences from the bible and the fathers of church. The binding with small abrasions on the covers and at the edges. The spine worn and with some abrasions and minor mendings. Leaves F3 & G2, with small, carefully deposited tear at the lower right corners, in the white margin (not touching the border). Good copy, the woodcuts in good impressions and preponderately clearly printed.
