Title : Buda. [Budapest] CXXXIX.
Map maker : SCHEDEL, H..
Date : Nuremberg, 12 July 1493.
Size : 17.4 x 23.8 inches. / 44.2 x 60.5 cm.
Colouring : Coloured.

Description :A very fine town-view of Budapest (24x52cm.). The City of Buda, since 1873 consolidated as one municipality with Pest, on the opposite side of the Danube, as Budapest, is represented by a large woodcut extending over the verso of one folio and the recto of another. In the foreground is the Danube.
To the left is the burg or fortress, surrounded by a wall. In the gable of one of the numerous buildings within this enclosure appears a crown and two shields. The buildings themselves are of a rather generic, nondescript architecture. Within and without the walls churches, by number and prominence of position, are given prime importance.
The castle of Buda, though actually located on a high elevation above the city, is shown on low ground. The residences of the city are closely packed about the churches. The only topographical eminence is in the right background—a low, bald hill. The river is without shipping, bridges or wharves. There are no signs of life. The view selected is unfortunately landward, instead of up the river. The muddy waters in the foreground give us little idea of the course of the beautiful Danube and of the relative position of Buda and Pest.
On the verso the left half of a city view of Strasbourg (Argentina),.
Page from the richest illustrated Incunable, the famous: Nuremberg Chronicle, published the year that Columbus returned to Europe after discovering America.
The woodblock cutters were Michael Wolgemut, the well-known teacher of Albrecht Dürer, and his stepson Wilhelm Pleydenwurff. Wohlgemut was Albrecht Dürer's tutor between 1486-90 and recent scholarship has shown, Albrecht Dürer may also have collaborated, since some of the cuts bear a remarkably close resemblance to the Apocalypse illustrations.
The printing was carried out under the supervision of the great scholar-printer Anton Koberger, whose printing were famous throughout Europe
A opportunity to acquire a 15th-century book illustration by named artists.!

Condition : Very good condition, wide margins and attractive colours. Some marginal paper re-inforcement in very lower part center fold and a few very small stich holes filled in.
