Title: Constantinopolis expurgnatio a turchis.
Latin text edition, set in a page of text. An imaginary view of Constantinople, published in a small folio edition of the 'Nuremberg Chronicle', proporting to show the capture of the city by the Turks in 1453 (only forty years before). Despite the eight editions (one possibly as late as 1604) fewer of these were printed than the Nuremberg original. A rare incunabule.     (id:87744)
