An attractive and interesting leaf from the reduced size version of Heinrich Schedel's renowned "Libri Chronicarum ...", better known as the Nuremberg Chronicle. Published by Johann Schonsperger with reduced versions of the maps and diagrams to be found in the original this is a detailed depiction of the Universe, Earth at its centre, named windheads at each corner and with God overseeing the whole supported by angels and archangels. The illustration appears set in a page of text whose verso includes two other scenes from the Creation. Although issued in a number of different editions through the next century, this is a more rare publication than the original.
