    Rare 1662 Version of Reineke Fuchs (Reynard the Fox). (Rostock: Joachum Wilden, 1662), 421 pages, [17] pages index, title page with woodcut printed in black and red, 40 woodcuts in text, woodcut head-pieces and initials, vellum with red morocco label with gilt titles, 16mo (4" x 16.5"), title page detached but present, contents moderately foxed but remarkably sound, some contemporary notes on the inside front cover and ffep, else a truly wonderful copy of this rare edition.

    This edition, in an entirely different style from the High-German edition of 1544, is written in verse with a new meter (an index of which is given at the end of the book). This Low-German version of the conflict between Isengrim the wolf and Reynard the fox represents the last of the medieval beast epics.
