JERUSALEM DESTRUCCIO IHEROSOLIME

Code: M2170

Cartographer: Hartman

Date: 1493 Nuremberg

Size: 43*59cms sheet

Original woodcut from the famous "Nurnberg Chronicle", printed in Nuernberg, in July 1493. Fully hand colored city view. Verso illustrated as well with eight smaller hand colored woodcuts of saints and a half-page scene showing the destruction of Jerusalem ('Hierosolimorum exicidium') Latin text edition. This view of Jerusalem is one of the earliest obtainable authentic city views, published only a few years before 1500. This plate was exactly published and printed in July 1493 in Nurnberg at Koberger. The "Nurnberg Chronicle" was the earliest and most richly illustrated incunabula and description of the world, which was as well illustrated with a small number of authentic double page city views. The woodcuts were mostly cut by Pleydenwurff.
