1493 – H. Schedel – Troya
Woodcut view of the ancient city of Troy, Turkey by Hartmann Schedel, comes from the German edition Liber Chronicarum, known as the Nuremberg Chronicle. Above view of Troy portraits of three Trojan kings present. Leaf number XXXVI.
The woodblock cutters were Michael Wolgemut, the well-known teacher of Albrecht Dürer, and his stepson Wilhelm Pleydenwurff. Wohlgemut was Albrecht Dürer’s tutor between 1486-90 and recent scholarship has shown, Albrecht Dürer may also have collaborated, since some of the cuts bear a remarkably close resemblance to the Apocalypse illustrations.
The printing was carried out under the supervision of the great scholar-printer Anton Koberger, whose printing were famous throughout Europe.
