Background: a woodcut from "The Nuremberg Chronicle", a universal history compiled by the
Nuremberg doctor, humanist, and bibliophile Hartmann Schedel (1440–1514), and financed by
entrepreneur Sebald Schreyer and his brother-in-law, Sebastian Kammermeister. Michael Wolgemut
and his son-in-law Wilhelm Pleydenwurff executed the illustrations in around 1490, a time
when their workshop was at its artistic peak and the young Albrecht Dürer was just completing his
apprenticeship there. Containing 1809 woodcuts produced from 645 blocks, "The Nuremberg
Chronicle" is considered to be one of the most technically advanced works of early book printing.
