Set in a page of German text. Map size: 38.5cm x 8.5cm. Home port of the Hanseatic Leaugue of traders and cities. The League was a major influence on north European trade from the Middle Ages. In its heyday during the 14th Century, the Hansa included well over a hundred towns. Its influence waned due to competition. The last meeting of the Diet took place in Lübeck in 1669. Bears the signature of David Kandel, wood engraver. Sebastian Munster's "Cosmographia" was an all-encompassing encyclopedia of geographical, historical, topographical and social commentary. Munster was a formidable polymath with knowledge of Hebrew, mathematics, languages and cartographic studies and was responsible for producing the first set of maps of the World and each Continent.
