Loose sheet fro the first edition of the “Liber Chronicarum” by Hartmann Shedel (1440 - 1514) published in Nuremberg in 1493 (12 July).
From the "Sexta etas mundi", sheet with several woodcuts, on one side the Council held in St. Peter's by Pope Gregory III with Bishops and Archbishops by Michael Wolgemut, and the king of the Franks Carlo Marcello son of Pepin the Elder, on another one three Popes of the eighth century.
Apparently structured as a chronology, the work is also improperly known as "Cronaca Universale” or “Cronaca di Norimberga”.
The sheet is in excellent condition (sheet photos).
