The Illustrated Meyer: A Visual Reference for the 1570 Treatise of Joachim Meyer
This book is a reference and study tool for Joachim Meyer’s treatise of 1570. It includes all 69 of Tobias Stimmer’s prints at their original size, and also the full set from the University of Leipzig’s copy, which were lavishly painted by an unknown artist some time before 1574, printed here at 150% of their original size. Alongside these illustrations are tables indicating all of the references to each one in the text, including the page numbers in both Meyer’s book and Dr. Jeffrey Forgeng’s 2006 translation, as well as the name of the play or description of the action. For completeness, the illustrations from the Lund and Rostock manuscripts are also included in appendixes at the back. This should prove to be an invaluable tool for the study and reconstruction of Meyer’s teachings.
