“This intricately illustrated edition of the ‘Schedel‘schen Weltchronik’ in Latin is an absolute masterpiece in every respect. Not only does it contain early cityscapes that mirrored the historical stage of development of that time, but also the legendary world map after Pompinus Mela, which shows the world before the discovery of America. The over 1,800 extraordinary woodcuts, which were individually colored in the printing workshop, have rightfully brought this incunable worldwide renown with their opulent artistic designs.”
