Folio XLIII (43) and XLIIII (44) from: Liber Chronicarum. (= Nuremberg Chronicle). Nuremberg, Koberger, 1493.

This major work, by the Nuremberg doctor Hartmann Schedel, generally known as the Nuremberg Chronicle was printed by Anton Koberger, the foremost printer of the day. It is a history of the world from the Creation to contemporary times. The work is remarkable for its illustrations, design and its woodcuts and description of cities. The views are some of the earliest representations of towns and cities, with around 116 places being identified by name. The numerous woodcut views, illustrations and maps are made by Michael Wohlgemuth and Wilhem Pleydenwurff and their workshop including Albrecht Dürer.
