Original hand colored woodcut from the famous "Nurnberg Chronicle", printed in Nürnberg, in July 1493. Fully hand colored, probably in the period or shortly after, depicting the city view of Ratisbona (Regensburg), the double page is verso illustrated with five beautiful hand colored woodcut illustrations showing saints and the half page of Vienna. Latin text edition. This view of Regensburg is one of the earliest obtainable authentic city views, published only a few years before 1500. This plate was exactly published and printed in July 1493 in Nurnberg at Anton Koberger. The Nürnberg Chronicle was the earliest and most richly illustrated incunabula and description of the world, which was as well illustrated with a small number of authentic double page city views. The woodcuts were mostly cut by Pleydenwurff.
