Part 2. Rare Woodcuts, Maps and old books. 1600-1700 a.d. archive

Views:975|Rating:4.82|View Time:22:59Minutes|Likes:27|Dislikes:1
Part 2 of a trip to some rare book archives. Come take a look. Many McIsencraft viewers like book forensics like this the best. See religious pressure groups 300 years ago try to stifle artwork, woodcut content and beliefs in the location of planets and stars. Three days in the making you wont see this kind of exotic content everyday. The earth does indeed have treasures to behold.
The Library of Congress book link to help you is posted right

Also the Library of Congress WOODCUTS section can be hard to find but I will post it right

Also this video has 2 actual woodcut depictions of a geocentric earth model about 1735. and other rare content

Part 1. Rare Woodcuts, Maps and old books. 1600-1700 a.d. archive

Views:853|Rating:5.00|View Time:12:53Minutes|Likes:18|Dislikes:0
A fun pictorial walk thru of a massive rare book archive. How many rare books, maps and woodcuts can we find in 20 minutes or so. It soon becomes apparent history has either been rewritten or distorted throughout the ages. Look how the earth is depicted on a 1735 a.d. geocentric model with the then current Pope’s icons in the book. A real walk thru time. Some maps and ancient beliefs are of interest as well. McIsencraft
Here are some woodcut links below

Woodcut, the oldest technique used in fine art printmaking, is a form of relief printing. … Woodcut prints are produced by pressing the selected medium (usually paper) onto the inked image
The woodcut, as it influenced our culture, appeared first in Germany, perhaps coincident with the introduction of paper. The first paper mill in Germany is said to have been set up near Mainz about 1320. The first one of definite record in that country was at Nuremberg in 1390. But paper was in use there before that year. It appears that the Germans were the first to practice card-making as a trade, and playing cards are supposed to have been the first articles printed on paper in Occidental history. Apropos, the burghers of Nuremberg before the year 1384 were permitted to play cards, provided they ventured only small sums, as mentioned in the by-laws of the town. But playing cards were in disrepute previous to 1380, for the pages of the court of Charles V were lectured on the impropriety of playing at dice and cards . . . and haunting taverns and cabarets.

As a sort of counter-balance to the pernicious influence of card playing, the blessings of Indulgences next appeared. These medieval passports to Paradise and licenses to break church regulations were sold by enterprising priests. It is doubtful that St. Peter was as taken in by these tickets as were the buyers. The indulgences were printed from blocks cut in imitation of the hand-writing then in use by the clerics.
