The Revelation of St John: Title page to the second Latin Edition of 1511

Woodcut, 39 x 28 cm
Staatliche Kunsthalle, Karlsruhe

The title page is illustrated by The Madonna Appears to St John. The divergences of the Latin text on the back of the second edition from that of the first edition are registered. The Latin title of the first edition (Apocalipsis cum Figuris) was used again. The quality of the printing of the second edition is inferior to that of the first of 1498.
