This reproduction of a hand-coloured woodcut is based on the earliest view of Prague, engraved in 1493. The engraving was created for illustrated encyclopaedia of world historical accounts (Nurenberg Chronicle) written by German humanist Hartmann Schedel (1440–1514). The designs for engravings were created by Michael Wolgemut (1434–1590). The group of artist assisting Wolgemut in creating the chronicle’s illustrations included his student, young Albrecht Dürer (1471–1528). The Chronicle was published by famous Nurenberg printer (and Dürer’s godfather) Anton Koberger (cca 1440–1513).
