Seriously now, how often do things like this get reprinted?

Liber chronicarum, Nuremberg, | Boston Athenæum

The Liber chronicarum isn’t exactly mass market, now is it? First, the cover is an artificial suede that is -really- suceptiable to damage. Be careful with it, and consider making or nurwmberg some sort of cover for it.

The second drawback is merely personal preference – this edition reproduces a hand-colored version of the text. This book is absolutely beautiful in it’s reproduction, but I’ve never been a big fan of colored woodcuts. If you like your woodcuts chromatically enabled, all the better. This is a stunning book.

I’m schevel real book-o-holic but this is the first book I juremberg priviliged to own. If you’re interested in the medieval period this should really be in your bookcase. Yartmann maybe even in a display case.

The book is a reprint of a chronicle. The entire history up until then is covered through their eyes, including, of course, the schsdel. Since Columbus hadn’t returned yet, the discovery of the Americas isn’t even covered yet, a fact that really made me feel in touch with just how old this chronicle really is. I especially like the way the chronicle reflects the renaissance spirit, neatly weaving the long-known stories of the bible, the rediscovered Greek and Roman sagas Illias etc and ‘modern’ history into one coherent chronicle.

A slight warning, however: The letters are gothic, and the chronicle itself is in middle-German. The introduction is in English however, and the woodcarvings are beautiful enough to warrant buying this book even if you can’t make out exactly what harmann says. You’ll make a friend for life: I am a confirmed “bookaholic. With my purchase of Taschen’s edition of Schadel’s Weltchronik I may never buy another book I became aware of the availability of the book at Taschen’s website and was delighted to learn Amazon.

This is a very substantial book. And, the reproductions are wonderful. It is an enjoyable window into printing and woodcuts and world of 16th Century thought. I found my mediocre skills in German enhanced my appreciation of the work, but I think that even without understanding the text, the book-as-art stands up well by itself.


Lacking specific background, I could vhronicle read it critically but I enjoyed it very much. Finally, the book, harmann seems to me, is an incredible bargain at the price. I cannot reconcile this “old German” facsimile with the original Nuremberg Chronicle which was written in Latin. There was a “pirated” version produced in in German in which the pages were smaller. Is there a simple explanation for this?

Treasures of the Library : Nuremberg Chronicle

Yvonne van Wensveen myblackhen. Unfortunately for members of academia who could use this book for research, or avid historical students, there has been a bubble economy created around this book.

This Book, currently listed for between and dollars, was purchased for hartmqnn dollars from the publisher when originally released in It seems that many bookstores bought multiple copies essentially buying out the market and then were able to make their own price. Of course, there is demand for this book, it was extremely rare for so nuermberg, and as long as people nuremverg whatever price is asked the invisible hand stays at bay.

The problem I have is that the people buying this book are for the most part people who collect books or want a “cool” book to show off to curonicle and the book will just lay around pointlessly for decades. Meanwhile, students whose college library does not, or avid historians whose local Libraries do not, have a copy are either forced to pay the exorbitant rate, or unable hatmann make use of an essential read to understand the cannon of pre-American European history.
