Three woodcuts with accompanying letterpress Latin rubricated text on laid paper from Hartmann Schedel’s (1440–1514) “Liber Chronicarum” (aka “World Chronicle”; “Nuremberg Chronicle”), published in Nuremberg (Norimbergae) by Anton Koberger (aka Antonius Koberger) (1445–1513) in 1493:

(verso) "Zachary and Elisabeth”—the parents of St John the Baptist, 1493.
