Publication: 1493-07-12

The Nuremberg Chronicle is an outstanding achievement among early printing. Anton Koberger printed the work with cast-lead moveable type and like most of the earliest printers, he copied some of the conventions current in hand-written books. Koberger combined the moveable type with woodcut illustrations, which were provided by the shop where the young Albrecht Dürer worked. This is the library's one millionth volume, presented by Jesse E. Wills, VU '22, on June 2, 1966.
