Book tickets

The Nuremberg Chronicle is one of the most celebrated illustrated books of the fifteenth century. In the late 16th century the copy now held at Chetham’s Library was owned by Thomas Gudlawe of Wigan, who annotated the Chronicle so heavily that hardly a single blank space remains in the margins. 

Dr Nina Adamova from the State University of St Petersburg has been awarded a prestigious British Academy Visiting Fellowship based at Manchester Metropolitan University to spend five months working on the Chronicle, and will be sharing her insights into what is almost certainly one of the most interesting books in the entire Library.
