Nuremberg was the city of Albrecht Dürer and many other important German Renaissance artist.
Nuremberg is the city where the Schedel Chronicle was printed in 1493. Nuremberg was a wealthy business city
with rich, proud, influential and powerful patrician families - (whom we see depicted in this print)

A few leters on th left side of the text have been covered.
Original antique print
The condition is superb. The original hand coloring outstanding. There is, not touching
the image, a minor crease in the lower right margin corner, as the only blemish (if you choose to call it that).
And there is a repaired little tear in the left margin, again not touching the image.
