    First edition. THE FIRST ILLUSTRATED ENCYCLOPEDIA. First edition, and a remarkable wide-margined complete copy, preserved in its original binding bearing the city of Vienna's coat of arms, of the first illustrated encyclopedia. Published in 1493, at the dawn of the discovery period, in Nuremberg by Europe's largest printer, Anton Koberger, this ambitious illustrated world history was commissioned by two of the town's merchants. Schedel, amedical doctor, humanist, and book collector, assembled the text from a variety of classical and medieval sources, doubtless drawing on his own large personal library. Michael Wolgemut and Wilhelm Pleydenwurff were brought in to design and illustrate the work, incorporating over 1800 images from over 600 individual woodcuts, more than any other previously published volume. A young Albrecht Dürer, who was apprenticed to Wolgemut whilst the book was in preparation, may have had a hand in some of the designs.The work was revolutionary in its juxtaposition of related images with text. In a chronicle covering the whole span of history from the Creation to the time of publication, with a look forward to the Last Judgment, the woodcuts include depictions of Biblical characters, legendary scenes, European cityscapes, and portraits of rulers and popes. Many of the larger illustrations were sold separately as prints, often water-coloured. Some copies of the book also had their illustrations hand-coloured. As was often the case with books of this period, many of the woodcuts appear in the text more than once, with just the captions changed.A slightly shorter, vernacular German edition followed in December of the same year aimed at the literate upper-middle classes. Besides occupying a key place in the history of book illustration, the Nuremberg Chronicle provides a wonderful insight into Renaissance knowledge and the fifteenth-century humanist understanding of the world" (). The work's author, Hartmann Schedel (1440-1514) was a physician and an important humanist and book collector, whose outstanding library provided much of the research materials for the work (Schedel's private library is today among the most precious collections of the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek in Munich). The original publisher's contract for the work is extant, providing a revealing window on the complicated production of this enormous project (see Wilson). A German edition followed in December of the same year. "As a product of humanism, the Liber chronicarum is a synthesis of religion, empiricism and classical antiquity. It is no wonder that of all people Schedel published the famous chronicle of world history. After all, he lived right in the centre of humanism: Nuremburg. Schedel grew up in the transitional period from the handwritten to the printed book and becamean ardent book collector. In Nuremberg he found himselfin the excellent company of 'arch-humanist' Conrad Celtis (1459-1476), but he also came into contact with the cosmographer Martin Behaim (1459-1507) and the astronomers Johannes Müller (Regiomontanus, 1436-1476) andJohannes Werner (1468-1522). The Nuremburg humanism was characterised by research into scientific, astronomical and astrological issues. "In combination with Schedel's personal interests in the field of medicine, philosophy, history and geography the ideal breeding ground was created for the Liber chronicarum. To really understand the topographical value of this world chronicle, it is important to have some knowledge of the characteristics, contents and sources of thebook. "The 'statistics' of the Liber chronicarum, which was financed bySebald Schreyer (1446-1520) and Sebastian Kammermeister (1446-1503), are impressive. The work has over 600 pages and both in the Latin and German edition there are more than 1,800 illustrations. The printer,Anton Koberger (circa 1440-1513), used nineteen already existing woodcuts from thePostillae (1481), while the other 633 woodcuts came from the workshop of artistsMichael Wohlgemut andWilhelm Pleydenwurff. A total of 652 woodblocks were available, of which 641 to 643 were used for the Latin edition and 639 for the German edition. To reach the total number of 1,800 illustrations, some woodcuts were reused. For instance, one and the same portrait of the pope occurs seventeen times in several places in the book! "Within three decades, the Liber chronicarum saw three reprints, in spite of the considerable price of three to eight guilders, depending on the binding and colouring. Of the Latin edition about 1,400 copies were sold, of the German edition about 700 copies. Because of a reduced and cheaper reprinting by the Augsburg printerJohann Schönsprenger (circa 1455-before1512), copies were no longer bought by the late medieval consumer from 1496 onwards. "The historiographic genre of the world chronicle was first developed in the Roman Empire and told, in chronological order, a universal history of the world, from the Creation to the Apocalypse.Schedel's world chronicle belonged to the type 'imago mundi' in which, apart from history and geography, also other fields of knowledge playa major part in the description of a worldview. Most world chronicles of this type followa fixed pattern,with a division into so-called eras in world history. By analogy of the six-day creation of the world, the main model, as included in Isidorus ofSevilla's Etymologiae,departs from six eras:Adam - Noah - Abraham - David - Babylonian Captivity- Birth of Christ- Apocalypse. Schedel follows this model to a large extent, but adds descriptions of two more eras: according to him the sixth and most recent era runs from the birth of Christ to his own time, the seventh from his own time to the coming of the Antichrist and the eighth and last runs from the Antichrist to the last Judgement. For each era, Schedel gives the length in years, according to the Hebrew and Septuagint calculations. "As to the text in the Liber chronicarum Schedel did not come up with an innovative protot.

    Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. Imperial Folio (430 x 305 mm). 325 (of 328) leaves (bound without first and final two blank leaves). Woodcut title, double-page maps and more than 1800 hand-colored woodcut illustrations printed from 645 blocks by Michael Wolgemut, Wilhelm Pleydenwurff and their workshop, including Albrecht Dürer. Fol. I opening with a 14-line initial in blue, on a punched gold ground within green and red frame, with marginal extensions comprising interwining sprays and flowers in green, blue and pink in typical Koberger style; fol. CCLXVII with an 8-line opening initial finished in the same style. The opening initial of the table painted in red and blue with extending penwork, paragraph opening initials painted in red or red and blue. The text Rubricated throughout, with a few paragraph opening initials painted in red and capital strokes in red. Restored and recased in contemporary blind-tooled goatskin over thick wooden boards of the Cologne "Madonna II" workshop.** Brass clasps and catches preserved (leather straps gone), outer corners protected by brass fittings, spine rebacked preserving most of the original material, boards with patches restored. The printed paper with some spotting and thumbing, minor browning and some marginal pale dampstaining in places (the table at end stronger), minor marginal worming to last leaves, a few old ink annotations. Corner-damage to f.10, large tear to f.91 and repaired tear to f.183, soiling and marginal repairs to f.291. The double-page map of Europe soiled at margins and with minor repair. Title spotted and soiled, with marginal repairs and old inscription. A few leaves trimmed close at upper margin touching or slightly shaving headline. A full-page engraved family tree after A. Birnbaum (c. 1660) of Johann Georg I. of Saxony with city-view of Johanngeorgenstadt pasted on blank verso of f.266; f.169v with ink-cancelled paragraph; ff. 2, 5, 7 and the 3 foliated blanks supplied from another copy, ff. 2, 5 and 7 with typical Koberger coloring. Provenances: Old inscriptions to title page "Ex Bibliotheca P. Zacharias Pieschel", a further illegible gothic inscription below and a paper snippet pasted at lower right corner; further inscribed "ex libris Equitis à Schönfeld" on paper strip mounted on front-pastedown, two paper snippets pasted below inscribed "Ex Collectione Incunabilis Principis à Wallensten," manuscript notes on title verso. From the library of Sandor Wolf.* ---- FIRST EDITION IN LATIN, AND HAND-COLORED THROUGHOUT. In contrast to the commonly found Koberger shop style of coloring with its dominating flashy red and blue, the colors in our copy are rather delicate and airy with pastel-shade ocher and green tones, none the less in a fine contemporary hand. The Nuremberg Chronicle is celebrated for its fine and numerous woodcut illustrations, to which Albrecht Dürer is believed to have contributed (see Wilson, The Making of the Nuremberg Chronicle, Amsterdam: 1976). It also includes two important double-page maps: a fine world map based on Mela's Cosmographia of 1482 (see Shirley 19), and a map of northern and central Europe by Hieronymus Münzer (1437-1508) after Nicolas Khyrpffs. The world map is one of only three 15th-century maps showing Portuguese knowledge of the Gulf of Guinea of about 1470. The map of Europe is closely associated with Nicolas of Cusa's Eichstätt map, with which it is thought to share a common manuscript source of c.1439-54. It is therefore claimed to be the first modern map of this region to appear in print. Although published later than the map of Germany in the 1482 Ulm Ptolemy, it was constructed earlier (see Campbell, The Earliest Printed Maps, 1472-1500, 1987). The publication history of the Nuremberg Chronicle is one of the best documented of any book printed of that period: the contracts between Schedel and his partners Schreyer and Kammermeister, and between Schedel and the artists, all survive. . . - Visit our website for more information and images!.

    Hardcover. Condition: Fine. No Jacket. 1st Edition. The Nuremberg Chronicle. Folio. Size of binding: 12 in. x 17 ¼ in. (30.48 cm x 43.8 cm); Size of pages: 11 7/8 in. x 16 9/16 in. (30.16 cm. x. 42.06 cm.) [20 ff.] 300 ff. (last one unnumbered); 6 ff. numbered by hand in pencil. The six folios following the 300 are unnumbered, and consist of one blank folio and five folios with the printed Supplement. This is a tall copy with wide margins on all edges. First Latin edition with two contradictory colophons, the second of which gives the date of July 12, 1493 as the date of completion. This copy begins with an index (table) of 19 leaves, preceded by an impressively lettered title page printed by xylography. The book contains 1809 picture-prints (645 individual woodcuts and 1164 repetitions). There are 26 double-page engravings of views of cities; some of these were apparently based upon sketches made on the spot. Sixty-nine other views of cities are based upon 22 woodcuts. Prints of individuals number 598, based on 96 different woodcuts. (This copy includes, unmarked, the famous portrait of "Pope Joan," which was removed from or defaced in many copies. It appears on the verso of leaf CLXIX [169]). There is no indication on individual prints identifying the artists, but Michael Wolgemut, the well-known teacher of Albrecht Durer, and his stepson, Wilhelm Pleydenwurff, are mentioned in the second colophon (folio CCC). A map of Europe and a map of the World are included. There are two colophons; the first, at folio 266, does not name the printer; it gives the date June 4th (1493). The second colophon is on the verso of (unnumbered) folio CCC, and gives the date of completion as July 12, 1493. Folios numbered 259-261 (CCLVIIII-CCLXI) are blank except for headlines. Full dark brown leather with six raised bands, gilt titling, blind-stamped designs in compartments; blind-stamped borders and designs on the covers. A small label reading "From Leighton's London" appears in the lower right corner of the front paste-down. The first page of the index has an illuminated capital latter "A." The initial letters in the index are finely and delicately illuminated in red and blue; the coloring is contemporary. Folio I shows a large, finely illuminated initial; rubrics are in red and blue throughout this copy. On the xylographic title page there appear additional titling in neat ink inscriptions. The headline on folio 193 (CXCIII) is cropped. Folio 98 (XCVIII) shows a tear to the lower right of the margin on the recto but there is no loss of paper and the text is not affected. These two are the only flaws found. In a cloth-covered, fleece-lined slipcase in fine condition. After the Gutenberg Bible, the Nuremberg Chronicle is the most celebrated book printed in the Fifteenth Century. It is a history of the world ab initio (from the beginning) and includes references to contemporary events such as a possible voyage in 1483 to the New World. THIS COPY IS EXTRAORDINARILY FINE; IT IS ALMOST ENTIRELY WITHOUT FLAWS, SECURELY BOUND. Weight is 15 ½ lbs.

    Condition: molto buono. in-folio gr. (448x305 mm), ff. 326 (su 328, mancano 2 fogli bianchi in fine presenti il f. CCLXI bianco con la sola indicazione del numero di pagina in alto a destra, e il f. bianco n.n. corrispondente al 326); così disposti: ff. (20), CCLXVI, (5), CCLXVII-CCXCIX, (1). Sontuosa legatura del XVIII secolo in marocchino granata, ricca bordura ai piatti e dentelle interna, il tutto impresso in oro; al piatto anteriore armi reali di Francia sormontate da corona e circondate da rami d'alloro, al dorso gigli di Francia e ricchi fregi, (conservata entro elegante astuccio e scatola). Testo su due colonne in car. gotico, iniziali a pennello in inchiostro rosso e blu nella "Tabula operis", grande iniziale filigranata al foglio I. Prima edizione (una seconda, con il testo tedesco, uscì nell'Ottobre dello stesso anno) della celebre Cronaca di Norimberga, il più grande figurato del Quattrocento: la sua straordinaria illustrazione si compone di ben 1809 silografie di vari formati (molte a piena pagina ed alcune su doppio foglio, alcune ripetute) opera di Michael Wohlgemuth, il noto maestro di Dürer e di Wil. Pleydenwurff. Studi recenti confermano che il giovane Albrecht Dürer lavorò ad alcune delle illustrazioni dell'opera. Soggetti sono tratti dal Vecchio e Nuovo Testamento, dalla storia classica e medioevale, nonché, in gran numero, da vedute topografiche delle città europee (molte di fantasia e varie reali nel XV sec., stupende). Comprende pure due carte geografiche su doppio foglio: un planisfero tolemaico e un'Europa centrale. L'illustrazione parte dalle varie fasi della creazione dell'universo, alla costruzione dell'Arca di Noé, a quella della Torre di Babele, ritratti di profeti e personaggi storici, vedute di città, raffigurazioni di cataclismi divini o naturali, fenomeni vari e mostri, comete ed eclissi di sole e di luna, torture varie, l'Anticristo e la Danza della Morte. Il testo dello Schedel descrive, in ordine cronologico, la storia degli avvenimenti del mondo dalla creazione all'anno 1493, ivi compreso un discusso passaggio sulla scoperta dell'America al f. 290 v. Si tratta senza dubbio del più bel libro di ogni epoca. Esemplare di illustre provenienza: al contropiatto anteriore ex libris del Conte Sergei Grigor'evich Stroganov (1794-1882), membro di una delle storiche famiglie della Russia; si distinse per la diffusione della cultura ricoprendo importanti incarichi nell'Amministrazione di Mosca.

    First edition of the Nuremberg Chronicle, the most extensively illustrated book of the 15th century, a universally acknowledged masterpiece of complex design. Compiled by the Nuremberg physician, humanist and bibliophile Hartmann Schedel (1440-1514), the text is a year-by-year account of notable events in world history from the Creation to the year of publication, including the invention of printing at Mainz, the exploration of the Atlantic and of Africa, as well as references to the game of chess and to medical curiosities, including what is believed to be the first depiction of Siamese twins. Drawn by the author from multiple medieval and Renaissance sources, such as Bede, Vincent of Beauvais, Martin of Tropau, Flavius Blondus, Bartolomeo Platina, and Philippus de Bergamo (Iacopo Filippo Foresta), the Chronicle also incorporates geographical and historical information on European countries and towns. The colophon on 266r marks the completion of the work of Hartmann Schedel; George Alt, a scribe at Nuremberg treasury who made the German translation, is the author of the remainder of the text. The book is especially famed for its series of over 1,800 woodcuts depicting biblical subjects, classical and medieval history, and a large series of city views in Europe and the Middle East - Augsburg, Bamberg, Basel, Cologne, Nuremberg, Rome, Ulm and Vienna among them, also Jerusalem (and its destruction) and Byzantium. The double-page map of Europe includes the British Isles, Iceland and Scandinavia, and the Ptolemaic world map is apparently sourced from the frontispiece of Pomponius Mela's Cosmographia (Venice, Ratdolt, 1488). The work was carefully planned, with manuscript Examplar volumes being made for both the Latin and the German text version that followed closely afterwards. The Latin edition was printed in Koberger's shop between May 1492 and October 1493. Wilson, The Making of the Nuremberg Chronicle (1976), approves Dr Peter Zahn's count of probably 1,500 Latin copies printed, of which approximately 1,240 have survived. HC 14508*; BMC II 437; Klebs 889.1; Polain(B) 3469; Goff S307. Imperial folio (444 x 310 mm), 325 leaves (of 326; without final blank). Contemporary German dyed-brown pigskin blind-tooled in a panel design with three frames filled with floral and scrollwork roll-tools, central panel with floral stamps; edges sprinkled blue, neatly mounted on later boards. Housed in a brown quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. 63 lines plus headline, Gothic letter, xylographic title-page, 645 woodcut illustrations by Pleydenwurff and Wohlgemuth repeated to a total of 1,809, some full-page, others double-page, including a double-page map of the world showing the Gulf of Guinea discovered by the Portuguese in 1470, and double-page map of northern and central Europe by Hieronymus Münzer. With the inscription on title of Johan Divel dated 1547 recording its gift from the estate of Herwart[?] of the canons of St Blasius in Brunschweig; small library stamp with crown and phrase "Karl ProPr" on title; posthumous bookplate of noted American bibliophile Robert S. Pirie laid in. Some contemporary sidenotes or captions identifying cities. Later spine worn, head and foot of spine chipped, corners mended; clean marginal tears mended in leaves 12, 56, & 291, small marginal smudges and spots, light browning within text block in leaves 172-182, 217, 250, dampstain in lower outer corner of last 16 leaves, a few tiny mends at lower edge of last leaf; overall, a very good copy.

    Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. THE NUREMBERG CHRONICLE. Nuremberg: Anton Koberger for Sebald Schreyer and Sebastian Kammermeister, 12 July 1493. First edition. Folio (16 5/8" x 11 13/16", 422mm x 300mm). [Full collation available.] Foll. CCLXIIII and CCLXVII supplied in facsimile; lacking the final blank (or two) after De Sarmacia. With some 1809 woodcuts, integral to the text, by Michael Wolgemut, Wihelm Pleydenwurff and almost certainly Albrecht Dürer. Bound in later dark mottled sheep (rebacked, with the original back-strip laid down), with a gilt fillet border. On the spine, six raised bands. Title (OPVS.CHRONIC./HANN.SCHEDEL.) gilt to red sheep in the second panel. Marbled end-papers. Rebacked, with the original back-strip laid down. First two panels of the backstrip split and coming up. Rubbed at the extremities. First free end-paper coming up. Initials (register-XV) and end-matter (CCXCI-end) mounted onto guards. Lacking leaves CCLXIIII and CCLXVII (supplied in facsimile) and the final blank (or two) after De Sarmacia. Leaf CLXXXVIII with loss to the lower spine-corner, supplied in facsimile. Various repairs (including one in thread to the 18th preliminary leaf). Leaf XCVIII slit horizontally. Leaf CCXCVI soiled at the fore-edge. Generally quite a clean copy, with good margins (albeit some shaved head-lines). Scattered marginalia (one (CXVIIIr) dated to 1555), mostly in secretarial hand. Armorial ex-libris of the convent of the Grands Augustins in Lyon and of Lionel H. Pries to the front paste-down. Pries's bibliographical cuttings pasted to the recto of the initial binder's blank. Obliterated bookplate adjacent to the Grands Augustins ex-libris. Armorial bookplate of a French count on the rear paste-down. Hartmann Schedel (1440-1514) is the historian who compiled the text of the Chronicae, but in some ways his was the least important role in the process of the book. In the era of printing's infancy (incunabula means "swaddling-clothes"), the printers and publishers (including investors) were often the more important agents in the creation of a book. Schedel lived on the same street as nearly all of his partners in the venture. This extraordinary neighborhood of book-producers came together to produce something that far surpassed the long-established genre of chronicles to which it belongs. Two colophons give different accounts of the work's completion; we know that it was begun in December of 1491. The first colophon (fol. CCLXVIr) gives 5 June 1493 as the date of completion. The second (fol. CCCv), which is fuller and gives the names of the publishers, gives 12 July 1493. The lasting appeal of the Chronicle, of which 1,205 copies survive according to the census in the Gesamtkatalog der Wiegendrucke, is its extraordinary woodcuts and their contribution to the overall layout. The cuts themselves vary widely in sophistication, from the almost modernist repeated cut of locusts to detailed city-views (for which the Chronicle is perhaps most famous) and the tight repertory of kings and queens, popes and popesses (Pope Joan on fol. CLXIXv is unmutilated; often zealous owners have scratched out her image or her description), which do not vary based on era or nationality. The volume must have resided for a time in Germany, as some of the marginal comments are in German, though most are in French. The unidentified armorial bookplate on the rear paste-down appears to be the oldest, and is likely French. The next point of ownership is the convent of the Grands Augustins in Lyon. Lionel "Spike" Pries (1897-1968) was a Seattle-based architect who studied at U.C. Berkeley and then at the University of Pennsylvania. Pries directed the Art Institute of Seattle (now the Seattle Art Museum) 1931-1932. BMC II, p. 437; BSB-Ink S-195; Gesamtkatalog der Wiegendrucke M40784; Hain (rev.

    "Outlandish creatures and beings that were thought to inhabit the furthermost parts of the earth". Double-page woodcut map. From the famous 'Chronicle of the World', known as the Nuremberg Chronicle, a history of the world, published the year that Columbus returned to Europe after discovering America. "The world map is a robust woodcut taken from Ptolemy What gives the map its present-day interest and attraction are the panels representing the outlandish creatures and beings that were thought to inhabit the furthermost parts of the earth. There are seven such scenes to the left of the map and a further fourteen on its reverse" (Shirley). The map is a copy of the Venetian woodcut added to Pomponius Mela's 'Cosmographia' eleven years earlier, and, like the Mela, shows the Portuguese discoveries off the west coast of Africa. The Schedel, however, also includes an unidentified island of this coast. The text of the Nuremberg Chronicle is a year-by-year account of notable events in world history from the creation of the world down to the year of publication. It is a mixture of fact and fantasy, recording events like the invention of printing, but also repeating stories from Herodotus. The world map is decorated in three corners with depictions of the sons of Noah responsible for recolonizing the world after the deluge; Shem, Ham, and Japhet, and the left hand margin displays seven semi-human creatures. These are printed from a separate woodblock and mark the end of a catalogue of human freaks, starting on the preceding page of the 'Chronicle', which derive from the 'Polyhistor' of Solinus (fl. 250 AD). They include a cyclops, and a man with four eyes, a mn without a nose (located in furthest Africa); a man without a head, whose eyes and mouths are in his chest; a man with a dog's head and talons for fingers; and a man with only one leg, but a foot so large that it doubles as a parasol. 645 woodcuts were used to illustrate the Chronicle, but many were used more than once, so there are a total of 1,809 illustrations, making it the most extensively illustrated book of the fifteenth century. The publication history of the Nuremberg Chronicle is perhaps the best documented of any book printed in the fifteenth century, owing to the survival of the contract between the publisher Anton Koberger and his financial partners Sebald Schreyer and Sebastian Kammermeister, the contract between Koberger and the artists, and the manuscript exemplars of both the Latin and German editions (Wilson). The cutters for the illustrations were Michael Wolgemut, his stepson, Wilhelm Pleydenwurff, and their workshop. As Albrecht Dürer was the godson of Anton Koberger and was apprenticed to Wolgemut from 1486 to 1489, it is likely that he was involved in the work. "The Chronicle would appear, at first glance, to follow in the tradition of a conventional structure of human history within the framework of the Bible, in analogy to the six days of creation. A brief Seventh Age follows, reporting the coming of the Antichrist at the end of the world and predicting the Last Judgement. This is followed, somewhat unsystematically, by descriptions of various towns. This narrative pattern conforms with that of the medieval "universal chronicles" written in Latin, as well as with vernacular chronicles. In the known Middle High German chronicles of the world, too, historical events are interwoven with digressions on the subject of natural catastrophes, wars, reports of the founding of cities, etc. Events occurring in other parts of the world are inserted parallel to the biblical stories. Hartmann Schedel chose to place particular emphasis on describing the most important cities of Germany and the Western world. In many cases, we find in the Chronicle the first known illustrations of the cities in question, along with the story of their foundation, the etymology of their names and a painstaking list of facts about the cultural life, economy and trades flourishing there in the period around 1490" (Füssel). The world map is widely regarded as the work of Nuremberg physician and humanist Hieronymous Munzer (1437-1508), who also contributed to the book's text. Campbell 219; Füssel; Shirley 19; Wilson, pp.98-122.

    Outlandish creatures and beings from the furthermost parts of the earth Double-page woodcut map with fine contemporary hand-colour in part. 'The world map is a robust woodcut taken from Ptolemy What gives the map its present-day interest and attraction are the panels representing the outlandish creatures and beings that were thought to inhabit the furthermost parts of the earth. There are seven such scenes to the left of the map and a further fourteen on its reverse' (Shirley) From the famous 'Nuremberg Chronicle', a history of the world, published the year that Columbus returned to Europe after discovering America. The text is a year-by-year account of notable events in world history from the Creation down to the year of publication. It is a mixture of fact and fantasy, recording events like the invention of printing, but also repeating stories from Herodotus. Even the world map is decorated with strange beings from the far reaches, including a cyclops and a four-eyed man. 645 woodcuts were used to illustrate the Chronicle, but many were used more than once, so there are a total of 1,809 illustrations, making it the most extensively illustrated book of the fifteenth century. The cutters were Michael Wolgemut, his stepson, Wilhelm Pleydenwurff, and their workshop. As Albrecht Dürer was the godson of Koberger and was apprenticed to Wolgemut from 1486 to 1489, it is likely that he was involved in the work. The publication history of the 'Nuremberg Chronicle' is perhaps the best documented of any book printed in the 15th-century, owing to the survival of the contract between Koberger and his financial partners Sebald Schreyer and Sebastian Kammermeister, the contract between Koberger and the artists, and the manuscript exemplars of both the Latin and German editions (see A. Wilson 'The making of the Nuremberg Chronicle' 1976). Albrecht Durer, godson of Koberger, was apprenticed to Wolgemut from 1486-89, exactly during the period Wolgemut's shop was busy creating the woodcuts for this volume. 'The Chronicle would appear, at first glance, to follow in the tradition of a conventional structure of human history within the framework of the Bible, in analogy to the six days of creation.

    First Edition with the German text. The bi-folium with fine hand-colouring to the Rome view. This is one of the large, double-page city-view woodcuts from the workshop of Mighael Wolgemut and Wilhelm Pleydenwurff beneath 22 lines of text. It is handsomely and finely handcoloured in blues, greens, yellows, reds, grays, etc. Double-page folio ( ca. 540 x 380 mm ), handsomely mounted, framed and glazed. Leaves LVII and LVIII. In fine condition and very well preserved and presented. FROM THE FIRST EDITION OF THE NUREMBERG CHRONICLE, ARGUABLY THE GREATEST ILLUSTRATED BOOK OF THE 15TH CENTURY. The artists, Michael Wolgemut, the well-known teacher of Albrecht Dürer, and his stepson, Wilhelm Pleydenwurff have been praised and admired for over five-hundred years for their contributions to one of the monuments of early printing. David Bland calls it "a marvelous book, and a landmark in the history of illustration," and through the ages it has more than fulfilled Koberger's prophecy that it would be "the delight of the men of learning and of everyone who had any education at all." A HIGHLY IMPORTANT INCUNABLE, the "Nuremberg Chronicle" is the most extensively illustrated book of the fifteenth century, and after the Gutenberg Bible the most celebrated book printed in the fifteenth century. Its 1,809 woodcut illustrations (1,164 excluding repeats) depict popes, saints, and other religious figures, kings and emperors, historical and biblical genealogies, mythological and fanciful creatures, natural phenomena, and views of all the major cities of the known world, as well as a brilliant creation sequence. In addition to the full-sheet maps of the world and of Europe, twenty-nine city views such as this one span two pages and eight other cuts (excluding the xylographic title page) are full-page. The colophon explicitly acknowledges the contributions of the artists Michael Wolgemut and Wilhelm Pleydenwurff. Albrecht Dürer was at that time a pupil in Wolgemut's workshop and there is good evidence that he did many of the preliminary drawings for woodcuts and may even have cut some of them (see Adrian Wilson, THE MAKING OF THE NUREMBERG CHRONICLE).

    No legatura. Condition: ottime. "Veduta panoramica della città tratta dal celebre Liber Cronicarum del 1493."E' la più nota immagine di Roma data alle stampe alla fine del '400. Essendo stata inserita nella fortunatissima opera di Hartman Schedel comunemente nota con il nome di Cronaca di Norimberga può dirsi senz'altro comune. Si tratta di una derivazione dal prototipo comune a tutte le piante medioevali di Roma e noto come panorama di Mantova, a sua volta ripreso da un presunto ma tuttora sconosciuto panorama inciso nella bottega di Francesco Rosselli verso il 1485. La città è vista da nord-est a volo dìuccello per porre in evidenza la zona Vaticana oggetto di vari lavori tra cui le spine di Borgo, il Belvedere (1485/87), il Santo Spirito ed il palazzo del Papa. Sono inoltre riconoscibili le realizzazioni di Santa Maria del Popolo e ponte Sisto. Tra le antichità spiccano il Pantheon, il Colosseo, la colonna Antonina ed in primo piano i Dioscuri nella originaria collocazione presso le terme di Diocleziano. Manca curiosamente l'Isola Tiberina" (cfr. Marigliani p. 117).La monumentale opera di Schedel, il Liber Cronicarum, rappresenta uno ?dei più straordinari lavori mai realizzati? dall?editoria del XV secolo. Gli incisori erano Michael Wolgemut, famoso maestro di Albrecht Dürer, e il figliastro Wilhelm Pleydenwurff. Wolgemut fu il tutore di Albrecht Dürer tra il 1486 e il 1490; recenti studi hanno dimostrato come Durer abbia collaborato alla realizzazione di quest?opera, poiché alcuni dei tratti hanno somiglianze stupefacenti con quelli dell?Apocalisse; alcune opere sono infatti attribuite al maestro di Norimberga.

    No legatura. Condition: ottime. "Veduta panoramica della città tratta dal celebreLiber Cronicarumdel 1493, basata sul modello di Francesco Rosselli, chiamatoVeduta della Catena."La cosiddettaVeduta della Catena, è la prima rappresentazione conosciuta di una intera città, risultato non di una proiezione fantasiosa, ma di una costruzione che, basata sull?osservazione diretta dal vero, si avvale anche della prospettiva. Questa grande silografia, come ha dimostrato Hülsen, deriva dall?opera originale a bulino, su sei lastre di rame, attribuita a Francesco Rosselli, di cui oggi è conservato solo un frammento, raffigurante la campagna in direzione di Fiesole. La copia silografica, attribuita già da Kristeller a Luca Antonio degli Uberti è conservata presso il Gabinetto delle Stampe di Berlino. La silografia con ogni probabilità è stata realizzata nella prima decade del XVI secolo a Venezia, come indicato dal tratteggio a linee parallele nelle zone d?ombra, che si utilizza solo nella prima decade del sec. XVI. La filigrana della carta, di recente individuazione, fu usata a Venezia nel 1494-95 e a Siracusa intorno al 1529 (Briquet 2537, 2546). Rispetto al modello fiorentino, Lucantonio degli Uberti introduce due elementi innovativi: la figura dell?artista disegnatore, inbasso a destra, e il motivo decorativo della catena, chiusa in alto a sinistra da un lucchetto ? di qui la denominazione Veduta della Catena - per cui sono state fornite diverse interpretazioni. Il punto di osservazione principale è da sud-ovest, in corrispondenza del campanile della chiesa di Monte Oliveto, ed è stato rialzato per dare maggiore leggibilità alle emergenze architettoniche e al tessuto urbano. Nella veduta l?asse centrale verticale viene fatto coincidere con l?asse della cupola di Santa Maria del Fiore che, simbolo religioso e civile della città, diventa così elemento principale e punto costante di riferimento nella rappresentazione della città stessa. La veduta crea un campo spaziale continuo che non solo mostra gli edifici, ma anche gli spazi aperti, le piazze e anche il corso delle strade di recente realizzazione, e non ancora chiuse dagli edifici che saranno costruiti lungo i loro lati. I monumenti della città sono quindi disposti nella pianta in modo da riflettere le reali relazioni tra di loro. Fuori dalle mura della città, l?immagine restituisce leprincipali caratteristiche del paesaggio naturale: vista da sud-est, la pianta mostra la città delimitata a nord dalla parete naturale degli Appenini; la valle del Mugnone, attraverso la quale passa la strada che collega la città a Bologna, crea una spettacolare apertura tra le montagne nell?angolo superiore a sinistra. Fiesole e S. Domenico sono rappresentate con un gruppo di edifici sormontati dal toponimo. Il convento di S. Miniato e di S. Francesco segnano le vette che dominano la città da sud. L?Arno attraversa diagonalmente l?immagine tagliando la città in due parti. Dunque, la rappresentazione del paesaggio non è né evocativo né poetico. Questa rappresentazione senza soluzione di continuità tra la città, fulcro dell?immagine, e il paesaggio, risponde sia alla realtà politica, in quanto i territori rappresentati appartengono di fatto allo Stato fiorentino, sia ad un?ambizione pittorica: sia la città che il paesaggio circostante sono concepiti come uno spazio topografico unitario. La veduta riporta il titolo FIORENZA, variante poetica del toponimo che, come sottolinea DavidFriedman, fa allusione ai concetti di ?fiore? e di ?fioritura? e viene usata con intento celebrativo, collegata ai concetti di pace e prosperità" (cfr. Bifolco/Ronca, p. 2149). La monumentale opera di Schedel, il Liber Cronicarum, rappresenta uno ?dei più straordinari lavori mai realizzati? dall?editoria del XV secolo. Gli incisori erano Michael Wolgemut, famoso maestro di Albrecht Dürer, e il figliastro Wilhelm Pleydenwurff. Wolgemut fu il tutore di Albrecht Dürer tra il.".
