Unique in the world. I became a collector of books and etchings after discovering this site. Dr. Martin Hagstrøm is a great expert; and when I needed explanations, clarifications I wrote to him and he was always very kind and generous with suggestions. THANKS.

Very interesting site, thanks! As you mention, the Paris Dance Macabre is the earliest one we know in monumental form, but only just: I wrote my thesis at Cambridge on one (still in glorious technicolour for all to see!) dating from 1426-7 and another one from 1474. Both were scaled up copies of woodcuts by artists working in the circle of the Meister E.S. and Meister mit den Banderollen. The woodcuts of the dance of death certainly predate the Paris frescoes, and these were themselves most probably derived from the prints and legend of The Three Living and Three Dead.

Hi Lucian

That certainly sounds interesting, and if your thesis is online you should post a link.

Nevertheless I must point out that 1426-7 (not to mention 1474) is later than 1424, so the Parisian Danse Macabre is still the oldest datable dance of death.

Thank you for your hard work on this site. It is wonderfully beautiful and makes it much easier to explore this fascinating topic than days gone by; when manual searches involved contacting various libraries.

Greetings. I came here after reading St. Thomas More's 16th century account of the Dance of Death depicted in St. Paul's. I am grateful for your collection, really enjoyed reading the poem and thumbing through all the artwork. Coming here was a wonderfully macabre experience.

I have found dance of death alphabet by holbein which you mention that you have not found:
A,I H L N M Z in D. Dionysii Carthvsiani Enarrationes piae ac ervditve in dvodecim prophetas (qvos vocant) minores printed 1549 by Quentell. Bib ID 2270026 from
rom their catalogue.
if you wait a day or so I will upload them to my Flickr account
I would like to ask you questions about a certain tailpiece. in another message. thanks erika

Hi Erika

That sounds interesting, but I'm not sure where I say that I'm looking for a particular edition by Quentel. Is it the same book as this one? Enarrationes Piae Ac Ervditae In Dvodecim Prophetas (Qvos Vocant) Minores ... longè politiùs ac diligentiùs ... quàm priùs edita Coloniae: Quentel, 1549

You're welcome to ask questions here, but you can also write me at martinhagstrm (at-sign)
