As in the 1479 German edition, the Spanish edition features an image that does not match the story.
Illustrations from the 1479 edition of Steinhowel
come from the online edition at the Library
of Congress. This edition is in German,
not Latin, so I have reproduced only the images here. The illustrations
for the 1501 edition of Steinhowel are online at the University
of Mannheim. So that you can see the Latin text on these pages, each
1501 image is linked to a full page view of this edition (although the images
are poor quality gif images, unlike the high-quality images at Library of Congress). Finally, I have included a 1521 edition of Steinhowel translated into Spanish, also from the Library of Congress. As you can see, the illustrations continue to follow the same basic pattern but have a decidedly different element of style.
