Item Description: Anton Koberger,, Nuremberg:, 1493. First edition. Latin.. A beautiful leaf, contemporary hand colored in green, red, blue, yellow and brown. Clean. Recto shows full length illustration of Abraham and Memphis (which is now called Cairo, of Egypt). Interesting to note that the city illustration has no qualities of being ?Eastern? at all, and makes this particular leaf more sought after than some others. To the left is a stream, assumed to be the river Nile. Verso illustrates Abraham about to sacrifice his only son, Isaac. The angel of the Lord appears overhead, halting the kill. A beautiful piece, most suitable for framing. The Nuremberg Chronicle is the most extensively illustrated book, and one of the most important, of the 15th century. The text is a universal history of the Christian world from the beginning of time to the 1490?s. Written in Latin by physician and humanist, Hartmann Schedel (1440-1514) on commission from Nuremberg merchants Sebald Schreye (1446-1520) and Sebastian Kammermeister (1446-1503). The Chronicle was printed by Nuremberg printer Anton Koberger (c.1440-1513), owner of the largest 15th-century German printing house. The Latin edition was printed in Koberger?s shop between May 1492 and October 1493. In the meantime, a German translation was commissioned to George Alt (c.1450-1510), a scribe at the Nuremberg treasury, and the German edition was printed alongside the Latin one between January and December 1493. The Chronicle was illustrated by German artists Michael Wolgemut and Wilhelm Pleydenwurff, with the assistance of studio apprentices, including a young Albrecht Durer. Bookseller Inventory # 15502

Item Description: Anton Koberger, Nuremberg, 1493. Incunabulum. Book Condition: Near Fine. 12" x 17" [30cm x 43cm] incunabulum folio leaf, museum framed. Highly desirable leaf from the 1493 Latin 'Liber Chronicarum', featuring a half-page woodcut of Paris [Parisium], in Near Fine condition. Deaccessioned from the Andrew Dickson White Museum of Art, Cornell University. In a handsome ruby red and gilt wood frame [13.25" x 18"] with museum notes taped to the back. Leaf appears to be laid on, unmounted (frame is sealed at back). Wonderfully preserved with just a bit of age-toning to the extreme edges and minor waviness to the surface (unmounted). Woodcut by Pleydenwurff and Wohlgemut, Latin text by Hartmann Schedel. Recto is half-page woodcut of Mainz [Megundio] with Latin text above. The Liber Chronicarum, bound, fetches $150,000 or more at auction; the Paris leaf, with its stylized view of the city, the Seine, and a 1400s caravel ship in the foreground, is a particularly sought-after leaf. Note: There are artists specializing in applying period-style watercolor to such woodcuts, greatly enhancing their visual appeal. I have included a sample of a colored version for reference. *Photos may show distortions (lens curvature, angled view, reflections, etc.) as the item is under glass. Bookseller Inventory # 03837
