An interesting element in the progression of series is that the plates for the second and third day have been printed in the wrong order, as in all issues of the Chronicle.
The third day in the creation of the world is presented with imaginative sense of design and symbolism in a series of circular diagrams with the hand of God in the upper left corner. 5 rings of space represent the additional creation of earth, water, fire and ice.
On verso the creation of the firmament after the division of light from darkness is depicted with 4 rings of space.
Page from the richest illustrated Incunabula, the famous: Liber chronicarum or 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.!
