Notes(s):

From the 1511 Latin edition of the Apocalypse with the letterpress text of chapters twenty and twenty-one on the reverse. Based on the woodcut at this point in the sequence in the Koberger Bible of 1483, this clearly illustrates the events in chapter seven, immediately following The Four Angels staying the Winds. However, Dürer actually placed it much later in his book (following The Beast with Seven Heads and the Beast with Two Horns), perhaps prompted by a similar image described in chapter fourteen: 'And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads...and they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth...'(14:1-4).
