Professor Karen Lloyd’s ARH 204 class “Arts in the Age of Exploration” visited Special Collections on Thursday, February 14 to learn about the history of printmaking and early illustration techniques. A selection of SBU Libraries’ most rare books were examined, with an emphasis on woodcuts and engravings including the highly documented Liber chronicarum (Nuremberg Chronicle), a history of the world produced in 1493 by the Nuremberg doctor, humanist, and bibliophile Hartmann Schedel (1440–1514).
