The most illustrated incunabula in the world, with 1821 engravings. With its 645 wooden carvings (xylographs) which represent 596 portraits of Popes, Emperors, Kings and famous men.

The majority of the engravings cover the 620 pages in folio size, representing the "chronicle of the world" from creation to the end of the XV century.

This superb incunabula is illustrated with numerous panoramic views of cities and biblical scenes. Perhaps drawn by Dürer, related to Koberger.

International social justice movements and the debates that ensued prompted us to start considering the contents of our website from a critical point of view. This has led us to acknowledge that most of the texts in our database are Western-centered. We have asked the authors of our content to be aware of the underlying racial and cultural bias in many scholarly sources, and to try to keep in mind multiple points of view while describing the manuscripts. We also recognize that this is yet a small, first step towards fighting inequality.

If you notice any trace of racist or unjust narratives in our communications, please help us be part of the change by letting us know.
