Discover the amazing tales of the knight Theuerdank, alter ego of Emperor Maximilian I, in the last great epic verse of the Middle Ages, using the power of innovative printed
media to increase the prestige of his dynasty, the House of Habsburg. Inspired by an extremely rare and hand-colored original from the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek, this edition
combines all 118 gold-adorned woodcuts with revelatory essays, fascimiles, and a chapter-by-chapter retelling of the tales in modern vernacular.
