A beautiful post-incunabula from Seville in Gothic script with elaborate woodcut initial letters, tables and diagrams and a title page typical of the printing works of the eldest of the Crombergers.

This book is reminiscent of the fine work of Meinard Ungut (a prototypographer working in Granada with Juan Pegnitzer) and Estanislaus Polonus (the prototypographer of Alcalá de Henares), whose woodcuts, materials were worked and used by Jacob Cromberger. 

The book is dedicated to Prince Charles, the future emperor to be.

The fine detail of the title is an indication of the richness of this work, making further praise redundant and unnecessary.

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.
