Incunable Prospect of Dumyat

SCHEDEL, D. Hartmann.

Damiata.
Augsburg, Johann Schönsperger, 1497. Latin text edition. Old mss. text highlighting. Woodcut, image 140 x 220mm, set in a page of text.

Some restoration in margins.

An imaginary view of Dumyat (Damieta) on the coast of the Mediterranean, published in a small folio edition of the 'Nuremberg Chronicle'. Despite the eight editions (one possibly as late as 1604) fewer of these were printed than the Nuremberg original. A rare incunabule.
