Edenburck In Schottl : D.Meisner

click here to view a large version in a separate window

An attractive miniature map of Edinburgh by Daniel Meisner 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 Meisner's death. With the number G51 (alphanumerics were added to a reprint) in the upper right 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 person, apparently swallowing swords, stands in the foreground.
