Compost et Kalendrier des Bergeres

Authority Quentell

The month of April. The shepherdess' calender from 1499, Compost et Kalendrier des Bergeres, was the first to feature large woodcuts for all 12 months. The woodcut was also used for Spring. Later it was used for the authority in the Danse Macabre. There's a larger version here: April.
