Three coloured woodcuts cut out of Latin editions of Sebastian Brant's Stultifera navis printed by Johann Bergmann von Olpe in Basel pasted in on endleaves at the end of the volume. The woodcuts definitely come from an Olpe edition, but as he re-used them in various editions, it is not possible to say with complete certainty from which edition they come. The first one is probably r7r of GW 5054 (1 Mar. 1497), the second one the title-page (a1r) either from GW 5054 or GW 5062 (1 Mar. 1498), and the third one s2v from the same.
