Note
  • This is the first German edition of a book commonly known as "The Nuremberg chronicle," which details the history of the world through the year of its publication, in 1493, along with a final section describing the anticipated last days. The text of this edition was translated by Georg Alt from the original Latin of Hartmann Schedel and was printed in December of 1493 at the press of Anton Koberger. The Nuremberg chronicle contains over one thousand separate woodcut illustrations by Michael Wolgemut and Wilhelm Pleydenwurff. Along with detailed maps of major European cities, the woodcuts depict exotic (and often highly embellished) flora and fauna, monsters, mythical tribes and peoples, biblical scenes, and settings from everyday life around the then-known world
