1493 INCUNABULA LEAF NUREMBERG CHRONCLE antique JESUS
Item Details
Description
Double sided foilo page of the "Nuremberg Chronicle", printed in 1493.
Sexta Etas Mudi. - Data est mihi potestas in celo et in terra: Salvator: CI. (Jesus Christ surrounded by the Twelve Apostles)
Size 14.2 x 8.8 inches.
(36.0 x 22.4 cm.)
A very fine presentation of Jesus Christ surrounded by the Twelve Apostles. Each of the evangelists being represented by his symbol in the corners.
This work written by Hartmann Schedel [1440-1514] is an illustrated world history which is based on the Bible, which follows the story of human history related in the Bible and includes the histories of a number of important Western cities. Written in Latin by Hartmann Schedel it appeared in 1493. It is a well documented incunabulum, one of the first to successfully combine illustrations and text.
This epic history divides human history into 7 ages. Published and printed by Anton Koberger, the godfather of Albrecht Durer and the most successful German publisher of his day. The woodcut illustrations were made in the workshop of Michael Wolgemut [1434 - 1519], with an unpredcedented number of 1,809 illustrations. These woodblocks include views of cities and towns, battles, kings, and saints. Some images represent actual cities, and other images are purely imaginative.
