Original woodcut in later hand color from the famous "Nurnberg Chronicle", printed in Nürnberg, in December 1493. City view of Venice, as well the initials in text rubricated throughout. Verso illustrated as well with the halfpage view of Padua on one side and on the side with six small woodcuts of Saints. German text edition. This view of Venice 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 Anton 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.
