Folium XXXII - Original leaf from the original, Latin edition (1492-1493)
Size: 46 × 32 cm.
Condition: Very good considering its age, with only a few tiny spots in the margins, otherwise perfect.
Strong print in good condition on beautiful unworn paper.

This is an original incunabulum leaf printed in the 15th century!

The Latin text page is illustrated with images of Kings, noble men and women and scientists, including Saturn, Juno, Picus, Faunus; Sibylla is a name denoting a number of prophetic women in various countries and in various times.

Page from the most lavishly illustrated incunabulum, the famous: Nuremberg Chronicle, published in the year Columbus returned to Europe after discovering America. In May 1493 one of the earliest voluminous books was published in Latin, fully illustrated with 1809 woodcuts from 645 wood blocks.
The wood engravers were Michael Wolgemut, the well-known teacher of Albrecht Dürer, and his stepson Wilhelm Pleydenwurff. Wohlgemut was the teacher of Albrecht Dürer between 1486-1490, and recent research has shown that Albrecht Dürer also may have contributed, since some of the woodcuts show a remarkably close resemblance to the Apocalypse of Dürer.
Printing was done under the supervision of the great printer Anton Koberger, whose prints were known throughout Europe.
Condition: very good for its age, now 520 years old!

An incunabulum or cradle book is a book that was typeset with individual letters and printed in Europe before 1 January 1501. These books are nowadays rarely seen on the market.
