The original edition of one of the most extraordinary and curious productions of the
fifteenth century, which can never fail to be highly interesting to the lover
of ancient engraving and printing. The fine woodcuts present the first
successful imitation of the cross-hatchings of a pen drawing. If Koberger
had printed only this chronicle, he would have done enough to place his
name among the most distinguished of his typographical brethren ; but he
has other and nearly equal claims to a very marked celebrity. See the
" Bibliotheca Spenceriana," where no less than twenty-six pages are devoted
to an account of the work, accompanied by facsimiles of many of the very
singular woodcuts. Hearne, in the preface of M Robert of Gloucester,"

der at the things in it, and I cannot but esteem the book a* extremely
pleasant, useful, and curious, by reason of these very odd cuts."
