Fairfax Murray (his sale 1917). Frankfurt am Main, (Georg Rab for Sig.(mund) Feyerabend and Simon Hüter), 1566. First Frankfurt edition, here with the fine woodcuts newly cut by Jost Amman (reprinted in 1578-79 at Frankfurt), and with Johannes von Francolin's appendix, and third edition of the text. Part one contains the description of 36 tournaments which had taken place in German and Swiss towns from the 10th to the 15th century. Part two consists of an account of the tournaments, skirmishes, processions, festivities, and other amusements which took place at Vienna from May 2 - June 1563, with the names and coats of arms of all persons taking part therein. Part 3 is concerned with the tournaments held in celebration of the entry of Emperor Charles V into Bintz (Netherlands) on August 22, 1549 with 12 large woodcuts. Rüxner's book is of great genealogical interest and an authentic source for German chivalry and heraldry, the customs and usages in German tournaments. The present edition with Amman's woodcuts, besides from their artistic merit, is remarkable for the correct rendering of costumes and armor and add to the value of this book as a historical source. Several of the cuts are monogrammed with Amman's initials, some have the monogram H/B and a woodcuter's knife, believed to be Hans Bockberger, one of Amman's assistants. - A fine copy of a German woodcut book, with an interesting provenance. - VD 16 R 3544; STC, (German), 760; Adams R-877; Becker, Amman, 8; Fairfax Murray, (German), 374 (this copy).
