Engraving, 1529. 58x52 mm; 2 1/2x2 inches, narrow margins (the uncut rectangular plate). A superb, dark impression of this exceedingly scarce engraving.

We have not found another impression at auction in the past 30 years.

Bartsch described this plate as circular, with a diameter of 52 mm. Similarly, Hollstein catalogued and illustrated this engraving, using an impression from the Detmold collection (see Lugt 760), that was trimmed to the circular border line and re-margined. Bartsch 173.
