Original woodcut from the famous Nurnberg Chronicle , printed in Nürnberg, in December 1493. Fully hand colored city view. Verso illustrated as well with four smaller hand colored woodcuts of saints. German text edition. This view of Passau is one of the earliest obtainable authentic city views, published only a few years before 1500. This plate was exactly published and printed in December 1493 in Nurnberg at Koberger. The Nurnberg Chronicle was the earliest and most richly illustrated incunable and descripton of the world, which was as well illustrated with a small number of authentic doublepage city views. The woodcuts were mostly cut by Pleydenwurff.
