Diodorus Seculus Illuminated Manuscript Woodcut Page 16th C.


This is an antique Hand Colored Wood Cut of an Astronomer viewing the heavens from a rare book titled "A History of the World" by DioDorus Seculus.

This hand colored woodcut was created in the 16th Century. It was printed on early rag paper with a printing technique used at the time. A woodcut was used to produce this image on rag paper, which was then hand colored.

The front of the woodcut depicts and astronomer viewing the heavens, with text around the picture. The back depicts a large dragon, again with words around the picture. The words are printed in calligraphy, and they are in an unknown language.

This beautiful and vibrant woodcut was from the edition of the book printed in Basel, Switzerland in circa 1580. This woodcut on rag paper is mounted on a matte.
