Descripción

This work by Schedel [1440-1514] is an illustrated world history which is based on the Bible, which follows the story of human history related in the Bible and includes the histories of a number of important Western cities. Written in Latin by Hartmann Schedel it appeared in 1493. It is a well documented incunabulum, one of the first to successfully combine illustrations and text.This epic history divides human history into seven ages. Published and printed by Anton Koberger, the godfather of Albrecht Durer and the most successful German publisher of his day. The woodcut illustrations were made in the workshop of Michael Wolgemut [1434 - 1519], with an unpredcedented number of 1,809 illustrations. These woodblocks include views of cities and towns, battles, kings, and saints. Some images represent actual cities, and other images are purely imaginative.This woodcut is of Tiburtina, now Tivoli in Italy. The image is one used regularly to show a city with bridges crossing a river. The text features Secundus, a philosopher famed at this time (the 6th age). Secundus led a Pythagorean life and did not speak. The verso describes famous people: a physician Galienus, scholars, bishops, and other religious figures. Approximately 12 x 17 1/4", b & w, sml fox spots on one edge in margin not affecting text, otherwise crisp and clean. N° de ref. de la librería 21646
