This lot features two pages from the Nuremberg Chronicle:

Medium: Engravings
Dimensions: Pages measure 11 1/4" by 16 3/4", Frames measure 19 1/2" by 27 1/4"

Details/Condition: The two engraved pages in this lot are from the Latin folio of the Nuremberg Chronicle. The volume was originally printed in 1493. These works were cited as original by our consignor, with a date of c1493. The pages are on laid paper, with chain and laid lines visible when held to the light. The woodcut engraved illustrations show important people from history.

The Nuremberg Chronicle is an illustrated world history. Its structure follows the story of human history as related in the Bible; it includes the histories of a number of important Western cities. Written in Latin by Hartmann Schedel, with a version in German translation by Georg Alt, it appeared in 1493. It is one of the best-documented early printed books - an incunabulum (printed, not hand-written) - and one of the first to successfully integrate illustrations and text. Latin scholars refer to it as Liber Chronicarum (Book of Chronicles) as this phrase appears in the index introduction of the Latin edition. English speakers have long referred to it as the Nuremberg Chronicle after the city in which it was published. German speakers refer to it as Die Schedelsche Weltchronik (Schedel's World History) in honour of its author.

The large workshop of Michael Wolgemut, then Nuremberg's leading artist in various media, provided the unprecedented 1,809 woodcut illustrations. Sebastian Kammermeister and Sebald Schreyer financed the printing in a contract dated March 16, 1492, although preparations had been well under way for several years. Wolgemut and his stepson Wilhelm Pleydenwurff were first commissioned to provide the illustrations in 1487-88, and a further contract of December 29, 1491, commissioned manuscript layouts of the text and illustrations. Albrecht Dürer was an apprentice with Wolgemut from 1486 to 1489, so may well have participated in designing some of the illustrations for the specialist craftsmen (called "formschneider"s) who cut the blocks, onto which the design had been drawn, or a drawing glued. A drawing by Wolgemut for the elaborate frontispiece, dated 1490, is in the British Museum. (history courtesy of Wikipedia)

One of the pages is matted within a wooden frame. The other page has been removed from its frame, and the frame will be included with this lot. The glass is lacking from this frame. As apparent on the page that has been removed from the frame, the back side has adhesive residue along the top and bottom edges. This page also has several small closed tears. Both pages show some age toning to the paper.
