  • Abstract: For the Prouesses […] Huon de Bordeaux (1513), Michel Le Noir mostly employed previously used woodcuts, but 21 of the 184 chapters are illustrated with new pictures characterized by unity and close correspondence to the sequences of the text. The woodcut following the title is identical to that of the Beufves d’Anthonne produced by the same workshop (1502) and some borrowings yield anomalies; conversely, new woods reproduce in the best way and with inventiveness the realistic or fantastical effects peculiars to this long romance.
