Original hand colored woodcut from the famous "Nurnberg Chronicle", printed in Nürnberg, in July 1493. Verso illustrated as well with four smaller woodcuts of saints. Latin text edition. This view of Konstantinopel 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 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. On the full sheet as published. Mended stitch wholes at the centre fold and other smaller paper restorations excellent done.
