The Nuremburg Chronicles

2 posts


Here's some neat scans (the latter especially) I found of the Nuremburg Chronicles, written in the late 15th century by Hartmann Schedel. I'll let Wiki describe it:
some really beautiful stuff in here don't be afraid to zoom in on the WDL link, the scan is HD.

Might as well include this as well, the Topographia Germaniae, a prolific topographical work from Matthäus Merian made in the early-mid 17th century. This is what the towns and cities of Germany looked like during the Thirty Years War.
