Title : Quinta etas mudi Folio XCI [Colonia].
Map maker : SCHEDEL, H..
Date : Nuremberg, 12 July 1493.
Size : 16.9 x 24.1 inches. / 43.0 x 61.3 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured.

Description :Double page in Latin with a panoramic town-view of Cologne. (19.5 x 52.5cm). This woodcut has been specially designed for the Cologne view, and appears nowhere else in the Chronicle to represent any other city. This is made certain by the coats of arms suspended form the tower of the fortress on the left. On each of these three shields are inscribed the three crowns, emblematic of the Three Kings of Cologne, and which appear in the arms of the city. Immediately before us swiftly flows the Rhine, upon which rides a medieval craft with a number of people aboard. They are waving farewell to a group of three persons who stand behind the seawall along the bank.

The city itself is represented as a walled town containing a number of churches. The tower of the great Cathedral, or Dom, is shown only to the third story, and the body of the edifice is still in course of construction, as stated in the text. The Cathedral was not completed until the 19th century. This structure became the symbol of the city, and is one of the greatest of all Gothic buildings. It stands on a slight eminence about 60 feet above the Rhine. Its towers, 512 feet in height, were for a long time the tallest structures in Europe.
VERSO : The left hand part of a view of Augsburg, as published.
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.!
Hartman Schedel

Condition : Dark impression on large sheet. In good condition.
