Froschauer: Initial N, The Scouts

Putto Pi Holbein

Many of the books printed by Froschauer were decorated by this attractive over-sized alphabet. Most of the scenes are from the Old Testament, a few from The New, and there is a W with William Tell shooting the apple off his son's head. This coloured copy shows Moses' scouts returning from the Promised Land with a giant cluster of grapes.
