Transcript German Musi tves by Durer (Apocalypse, Passions, Life of Mary , Lucas Cranach, Hans Burgkmair, Grien. SchaufFelein. etc . and of copper-engravings] by Durer, Lucas van Leyden, Aldegrever. Altdorfer, Augustin Hirschvogel, etc. In the next room we enter the region of printed books, and find a well-arranged and delightful collection.
