Fine facsimile of this important and early German illustrated book. Michael Wolgemut (1434-1519) was the most prominent artist (painter and engraver) of Nuremberg during the 15th century. His workshop was the hub for many of the best artists, including Durer, who worked with Wolgemut from 1486-1490.
