Incunabula World Chronicle 1493 Liber Chronicarum. Schedel Folio Koberger For Sale

Incunabula World Chronicle 1493 Liber Chronicarum. Schedel Folio Koberger

Liber chronicarum. Nuremberg: Anton Koberger, for Sebald Schreyer and Sebastian Kammermeister, July 12 1493.

Folio (41 cm 28 cm, size of the pages)

325 leaves (of 328, without the xylopgraphic title page and the 2 blanks)

But including the supplement "De Sarmacia," the blank between folios 266-7, and the 3 folios 259-261 blank except for headlines and foliation).

I think this book hardly needs any introduction, If you like to read about it

There are many digital links supplied, so you can see the entire book.

The Liber chronicarum is a world history from the late middle ages compiled by the Nuremberg doctor Hartmann Schedel (1440-1514). Schedel's world history covers the period from the creation of the world to around 1450, which is followed by a look ahead to Judgement Day. In line with tradition, Schedel’s world history is divided into seven periods. A summary of the story of Creation is presented in the first period, which is followed by the periods running from Noah to Abraham, from Abraham to David, from David to the Babylonian Captivity of the Papacy, from the Babylonian Captivity to the birth of Christ, and from the birth of Christ to Judgement Day, the sixth period, which includes Schedel'sown time. The final period, the seventh period, comprises the Kingdom of the Antichrist, ending with Judgement Day. Schedel’s Liber chronicarum is not so much well-known for its text, but rather for its typography and the unusually large number of illustrations for the time. Published in 1493 in Latin and German by Nuremburg printer Anton Koberger, the book contains more than 1,800 woodcuts and is therefore the most richly illustrated incunable ever.
