A scarce page from Hartmann Schedel's 1493 Liber Chronicarum illustrating several imaginary Hungarian towns in a idealized countryside. The Liber Chronicarum or, as it is more commonly known, the Nuremberg Chronicle is alavishly illustrated world history written from a Biblical perspective. The Chronicle featured an unprecedented 1,809 woodcut engravings by the German painter and printmaker Michael Wolgemut.
