Christian Wurstisen was a 16th-century historian from Basel whose fame was found in his ‘Bassler Chronicle’ as well as being mentioned by name in Galileo’s ‘Dialogue’. Wurstisen sought to gather important historical events from Basel, including the publication of Nicolaus Copernicus’s ‘Revolutions of Heavenly Spheres’ in Basel. This impressive first edition, published by Thurneysen, features numerous wood engravings of noble arms, portraits, and views of cathedrals and buildings.

 

These first two volumes of Wurstisen’s ‘Chronicle’ cover the earliest times in Basel from 60BC and Roman rule through 1580 and the influence of the Protestant Reformation and Calvinism.
