Ulma : H. Schedel

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A fine and rare woodblock plan/view of the city of Ulm as seen from across the River Danube with its wooden bridge in the right foreground. Ulm has a major part in the history of early cartographic publishing - the city which produced Leonhardt Holle's edition of Ptolemy in 1482 and '86. The so-called "Nuremberg Chronicle" is regarded as one of the finest and most important books of the early period of printing, renowned for its numerous woodcut illustrations showing natural phenomena, European and Middle Eastern towns, Biblical, historical and mythological events and maps of the ancient, Ptolemaic world and one of modern Europe. The author was Hartmann Schedel and the book appeared in just two editions, both 1493. Minor, but acceptable, discolouration at old centrefold otherwise a very decorative example of the German text edition.
