The Dance Of Death

Hans Holbein

""The Dance of Death"" is a book that features a series of woodcuts created by the renowned artist Hans Holbein. The book depicts a series of images of Death personified as a skeleton, dancing with people from all walks of life, including kings, peasants, and clergy. Each woodcut is accompanied by a poem in both Latin and German, which serves to underscore the theme of the inevitability of death and the transience of life. The book was first published in 1538 and has since become a landmark work of art, renowned for its striking imagery and commentary on the human condition. The Dance of Death is a haunting and thought-provoking work that continues to captivate audiences today.This scarce antiquarian book is a facsimile reprint of the old original and may contain some imperfections such as library marks and notations.
