Description: Woodcut, uncolored. Image measures 8" x 9", image plus text measures 13.75" x 9".

Comments: From the German edition of the Liber cronicarum (Nuremberg Chronicle). The first secular published book, it tells the history of the earth through seven "ages". As the verso of blat XLV, this piece shows a fictitious view of Pisa. Although many towns and cities in Europe and the Near East are illustrated in the book, 49 of them were printed with only 14 different woodblocks. Therefore, this illustration is identical to the page describing the Roman town of Tiburtina. Some very minor foxing and a fold along bottom margin, not affecting image.
