Biographical note

Mainly holograph M.S. by the hand of Johann Lindner of Mönchburg [1440-1524], the German historian. Produced in Leipzig. Johann Lindner,the historiographer, was born at Münchberg, and studied at Leipzig where he took his Master's Degree about 1474. He joined the Dominican Order at Pirna, and later became Chaplain to Prince George of Saxony. He wrote a large chronicle of universal history entitled 'Onomaticon' which is in the Leipzig Town Library, and has never been printed in full, though it was used by Pistorius as a continuation of the 'Nüremberg Chronicle' from 1480, in his 'Scriptores rerum Germanicarum 1582-1607'.
