Original double page woodcut from the famous 'Nurnberg Chronicle', printed in Nürnberg, in December 1493. Fully hand colored city view, as well the initials in text rubricated throughout. Verso illustrated as well with small hand colored woodcut illustrations. German text edition. This view of Munich is one of the earliest obtainable authentic city views of this city, published only a few years before 1500. This plate was exactly published and printed in July 1493 in Nürnberg at Koberger, where the 'Nurnberg Chronicle' was published and printed. The city view of Munich (München) is very well executed and is pretty authentic drawn. The 'Nurnberg 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.
