Excester In Engellandt : D.Meissner

click here to view a large version in a separate window

An attractive miniature map of Exeter by Daniel Meissner originally from the "Thesaurus Philo-Politicus" whose publication was begun in Frankfurt in 1623. Those maps showing towns of the British Isles appeared from 1626 when Eberhard Kieser and Johann L Gottfried took over after Meissner's death. With the number G46 (alphanumerics were added to a reprint) in the upper left corner this particular example is from the later Nuremberg reprint of 1637 or later in "Sciographia Cosmica". The miniature bird's-eye view is surmounted by a Latin motto at the top of the page and German and Latin verse beneath the map. A serpent is shown in the foreground with the walled city of Exeter and its cathedral clearly identifiable beyond.
