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.

Your beautifully wrapped package of books -- two copies of "Journal in the Night" -- arrived at my door this morning and made my day! A thousand thanks for the care you took, first to find them, and then to send them as you did, all done up with tissue paper to boot. It was like Christmas in June AND it was my first experience buying books on the Internet. All the best to you, and perhaps our paths will cross again. - Janet B.
