Originally published in Nuremberg in 1493 by Hartmann Schedel, illustrated by Michael Wolgemut and Wilhelm Pleydenwurff, and printed by Anton Koberger.
The Nuremberg Chronicle, more properly known as the Liber Chronicarum, is a history of the world from creation to its publication in 1493. Its structure follows the story of human history as related in the Bible while also including digressions on natural catastrophes, royal genealogies and the histories of a number of important Western cities. Hartman Schedel, a Nuremberg physician and humanist scholar, compiled the work. It was illustrated and engraved by leading artists of the day, Michael Wohlgemut and Wilhelm Pleydenwurff, and published by Anton Koberger, the largest printer and publisher in Germany at the time. The Chronicle is considered one of the most outstanding examples of early printing. Its fames stems primarily from the quality of its illustrations. It was the most lavishly illustrated book of the time and was one of the first to successfully integrate illustrations and text. In its own time, it was a very popular work with approximately 2500 copies printed and editions appearing in both Latin and German. The book was so successful that an unauthorized, less expensive edition was printed in Augsburg in 1497.--Text from the University of Maryland Libraries online exhibit "The Nuremberg Chronicle."
