Title : [Text page Popes, Saints and Kings. Derwerlt. Blat. CLXXIII ]..
Map maker : SCHEDEL, Hartmann..
Date : Nuremberg, 23 December July 1493.
Size : 13.8 x 8.7 inches. / 35.0 x 22.0 cm.
Colouring : In original colours.

Description :German edition and translated by Georges Alt from the Latin edition published that sale year July 12th 1493. German text page with woodcuts of Popes, Saints and Kings. A woodcut of a medieval town with its church. The verso side is printed with German text and a series of Popes, and a woodcut of Saint Michael. In the Middle Ages, Saint Michael was celebrated as a holy day of obligation, as he was the patron of knights, but along with several other feasts it was gradually abolished since the eighteenth century.
Page from the richest illustrated Incunable, the famous: Nuremberg Chronicle, published the year that Columbus returned to Europe after discovering America. In May of 1493 appeared in the Latin language one of the earliest voluminous books, fully illustrated with 1809 woodcuts printed from 645 woodblocks. With the help of others, including the globe maker Martin Behaim, Doctor Hartmann Schedel (1440-1514) compiled and published a Chronicle of the World now known as the Nuremberg Chronicle. Printed by Anton Koberger, and financed by Sebald Schreyer in Latin and German editions.
The woodblock cutters were Michael Wolgemut, the well-known teacher of Albrecht Duerer, and his stepson Wilhelm Pleydenwurff. Wohlgemut was Albrecht Duerer's tutor between 1486-90 and recent scholarship has shown, Albrecht Duerer may also have collaborated, since some of the cuts bear a remarkably close resemblance to the Apocalypse illustrations.

Condition : Some marginal browning and staining. Overall toning. Dark impression on large sheet. Else very good condition. In original colours
