The Arms of Stabius,

Woodcut

Edition: There are two Stabius coats of arms of which this is the earlier. Meder attributes this one (Bartsch 165) to the Dürer school work (Springinklee os Wolf Traut). The drawing for the other is in the British Museum, and the wood blocks for both are in the Albertina. This block was cut from 1512–1517 but the earliest impressions known from it are those taken by Gabriel Pesthenus, Vienna 1538.
