Original woodcut map published in a German text edition of the famous 'Nurnberg Chronicle', printed in Nuremberg, in July 1493. German text edition published in December 1493. 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 and scenes related to the creation of the world. These woodcuts were mostly cut or designed by Hanns Pleydenwurff and Michael Wolgemut. Also Albrecht Dürer did his apprenticeship in this famous Nuremberg workshop.
