Frankfurt am Main, G. Rab for S. Feyerabend a. S. Hüter, 1566 A.D.

DESCRIPTION:
First in Frankfurt printed edition of the "Thurnier Buch" by Georg Rüxner illustrated with the woodcuts by Jost Amman. It is the fourth version of the "Thurnier Buch" by G. Rüxner (first edition published in Simmern 1530) and the second version of the "Thurnier Buch" by Francolin (first editionpublished in Vienna 1561). It contains the famous description of 36 tournaments held in the empire as well as the tournament of Vienna, which Maximilian II arranged for his father I.. At the end of the text by Francolin there is missing the description of the arrival of the heir apparent Philipp in Bintz on 22nd August 1549.

The first of the tournaments described - nowadays questioned - is dated 938 and was presumably organized by emperor Heinrich I at Magdeburg, the last of the tournaments in Rüxner's book is the last imperial tournament at all held at Worms in 1487.
