A new publication for Rare Books & Fine Art

The Schedel-World-Chronicle is one of the great books from the early period of printing with moveable types. With 1.800 woodcuts, it is nothing less than flamboyantly illustrated. For a person browsing through the bulky folios, a view is opened into the latter Middle Ages. But in the renown and attraction of this famous book, there also lies the seed of its destruction.

The author was Hartmann Schedel, a city-physician in Nuremberg. Driven by passionate fanaticism, he had collected everything that had been published or scripted during his time and on which he could lay his hands, and then assembled it under the audacious title “The World” – with just about everything that was then believed, was known or even just presumed. In the German language area, it is today known as the “Schedelsche Weltchronik” and revered and collected worldwide as “The Nuremberg Chronicle”.

For almost four decades, the German TV-presenter and correspondent Wolf von Lojewski collected “The Schedel-World-Chronicle”.In his case though as “Scattered Leaves” of different provenience and preserved quality – sometimes coloured, sometimes with ancient notes and scribblings, sometimes damaged or repaired.

Follow him on a thrilling journey of the history of a 500-year-old-book and his adventures as a collector.
