Transcription Notes:
jeni92127 re-open: - While "distel" is the correct translation for "thistle," the original author transposed letters, so transcription should be "ditsel". bckaemper reopen: Sorry, but there is nothing "transposed" here - this is the "long s" of german Kurrent, followed by the "t" Changed "Apfe" to Affe (no kurrent p there) - For the second illustration, drawing description could be changed to "whistle" vice "pipe" to disambiguate from smoking pipe - On list, changed "nessel" to "nelke" to match the illustration mention. Compare illustration to clove flower image at: . There are other types of clove flowers [and nettles] but the clove image is the only one that looks the same as the illustration. bckaemper: I also read this clearly as "Nelke", not Nessel. - For anyone not used to seeing the cursive "ch" character [kind of looks like a "y"], go here: and scroll down to the cursive chart. FYI, a cursive "s" can look like a straight vertical line bckaemper re-open: I am a native German and read this w/o any doubt as simply "Schelle" Spechter (original author might have accidentally switch becher and spechter labels): bckaemper re-open: 'Spechter' is a special kind of cylindrical glas, originating probably from the low wooded mountain regiona that is called 'Spessart', cf. jost amman: - crosier guess based on Schonga?er work on the Orlier Altar's Proclamation Mariae - caduceus in relation to Erhard is due to his work on the Trial of Paris which has the gods in the story, one of whom has a caduceus (Hermes/ Mecury) ---------------- illustration description was based on German legend underneath, am fluent in German, please contact me if any help/translation is needed @plambert78 2nd reader: German native speaker & researcher in early modern times bckaemper re-open: changed Hanck to Hauck, rhis is Heinrich Hauk, cf. changed Eckorn to Eckern. That is the plural form of the nut of fagus sylvatica (also Buchecker), cf., which is the preferred food of these animals I see a "?" written over the closing bracket - changed Schelen to Scheleu, Leu is the old form of 'L?we' - changed Bahum to Beham, I interprete the letter after the h as an "a" that is not closed which can easily happen and is even the rule for the kurrent a; alternatively this could be a rare variant name form, like here, This is - changed Weinland to Weinlaub (wine leafs) Added the pencil drawings in the middle left margin. Otherwise looked good! :) - GigglePop
