    It looks like it's in Latin.
    Andreae Vasalii.
    The image of death may well be from his book on human anatomy:
    De humani corporis fabrica libri septem

    Thank you so much. I've found this Piece years ago at the dump and thou I would never find out anything about it. Thank you so much. How old do you think it is?

    No idea as yet about the age with just these images.
    You can see the image here:
    You have the title page, the fourth image I'd say.
    It is bound to have been re-done many a time over the centuries too!
    But then maybe you have something of import.
