Note: from "Liber Chronicarum..."

A history of the world from the biblical creation to the late 15th century, the "Chronicle" was written in Latin by physician, humanist scholar, and book collector Hartmann Schedel (1440-1514), who drew heavily on works of ancient and Medieval history from his extensive personal collection. (Schedel's library in 1498 contained 370 manuscripts and 670 printed books.) He divided his work into the usual six ages of the history of mankind, adding a seventh in which he foretold the coming of the Antichrist, the destruction of the world, and judgment day. With 1,809 woodcut illustrations from 645 blocks by Michael Wolgemut, Wilhelm Pleydenwurff, and their workshop, including the young Albrecht Dürer; the illustrations include 29 double-page town views, eight full-page cuts, and double-page maps of the World and of Europe by Hieronymus Münzer after Nicolas Khrypffs. They picture the major events of the Old and New Testaments, episodes in the lives of many saints, portraits of prophets, kings, popes, heroes, and great men of all centuries, freaks of nature, and panoramic views of cities. Nuremberg artists Michael Wolgemut and Wilhelm Pleydenwurff were responsible for the production of the book. The wood blocks were designed by the two masters and their assistants, including the young Albrecht Durer, who was apprenticed to Wolgemut at the time. The printing was carried out under the supervision of the great scholar-printer Anton Koberger, whose illustrated books were famous throughout Europe
