Plate 15 from The Life of the Virgin. Bartsch (XIV) 635. With Durer's monogram in the plate, lower right: "AD"; numbered in the plate lower center: "15". A fine impression in fine condition aside from water stain and traces of foxing. Trimmed on or within platemark on all four sides and tipped to a support sheet length of left side. Raimondi's direct copies in engraving of The Life of the Virgin woodcuts by Dürer led the latter make a complaint to the Venetian Government in 1511. Raimondi's copies included Dürer's famous AD monogram. Dürer won some legal protection for his monogram, but not his compositions - an important case in the history of intellectual property law.
