Police and Prostitutes

Cops and Hookers, a classic combination

Figure of a Prostitute from the Nuremberg Chronicle

This figure of a prostitute appeared in the Liber Chronicarum Figuris, known as the Nuremberg Chronicle, a history of the world printed in Nuremberg in 1493. Containing some 1,800 woodcuts of subjects including the Creation and other Biblical stories, portraits of historical figures including saints, and city views like this one, the Chronicle was the most ambitious publishing venture of the fifteenth century.
