The first page of the Book of Chronicles or Liber Chronicarum by Hartmann Schedel, also called Schedel's World History or Nuremberg Chronicle. The famous frontispiece with the representation of the blessing God the Father with an orb in his hand seated on the throne.
Michael Wolgemut and his stepson Wilhelm Pleydenwurff were woodblock cutters of the illustrations of Schedel's World Chronicle. Albrecht Dürer was an apprentice in Wohlgemut's workshop between 1486 and 1490, so the young Dürer was most likely involved in the woodcutting work, since some of his illustrations for his Apocalypse show a remarkable similarity.
