    Description

    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.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
