Biographical notes:

"The Nuremberg Chronicle, more properly known as the Liber Chronicarum, is a history of the world from creation to its publication in 1493. Its structure follows the story of human history as related in the Bible while also including digressions on natural catastrophes, royal genealogies and the histories of a number of important Western cities. Hartman Schedel, a Nuremberg physician and humanist scholar, compiled the work. It was illustrated and engraved by leading artists of the day, Michael Wohlgemut and Wilhelm Pleydenwurff, and published by Anton Koberger, the largest printer and publisher in Germany at the time." -- "The Nuremberg Chronicle (Liber Chronicarum)" University of Maryland Libraries. http://www.lib.umd.edu/ (Retrieved September 29, 2009)
