Dear forumites,

I am searching for information on a Swiss Chronicle dated to 1427 where the image below comes from. I found it while browsing the web but stupidly made no note about the web address where it was found. I do not think there were information about what chronicle it came from at the place I saw it and if there were I failed to make a note of this as well. Now I naturally need to track down the origins of the image!

It would be great if some one recognize it and perhaps knows where it is from.
Any hints or leads much appreciated!

I think its Speculum Humanae Salvationis from 1427.

EDIT:

Quick search turned up these for you.

and

The actual text is online scanned under "facsimile" in the second link. Page 18r. is the picture.

Thank you Bryan!

Never dared hope someone would know it or that I should receive an answer this quickly.

Thank you very much.
