The "Nuremberg Chronicle," a history of the world from the Creation to the year 1493, was the most profusely illustrated book printed during the fifteenth century. Scholars seeking to identify illustrations that might have been contributed by Dürer often point to the striking woodcut that depicts Odysseus rescuing his seafarers from the sorcery of Circe, who had turned the men into animals.
