“Nuremberg, above all other cities, gives one the impression of a city of the Middle Ages ; yet this impression is produced by houses Classic in date and details. A Gothic city existed before the present one, as the two great Gothic churches testify, and the view in the Nuremberg Chronicle, in the year 1498. The Nassauer House and some others remain. . . . Here, as elsewhere in the early Renaissance, the essential spirit of the style is Gothic” (254-66).
