Fine original leaf from Virgil’s Bucolicorum, Aegloga V edited and published by Sebastian Brandt in 1502.

Although the introduction suggests that Brant himself was the designer, it is more likely that the extensive and richly detailed illustrations were executed under his supervision. These woodcuts, which bring a Renaissance twist to this classical text, form the basis of practically all Virgilian imagery in the 16th century.
