Europa ... : S. Munster

click here to view a large version in a separate window

An attractive and important woodblock map of Europe by Sebastian Munster, unusually with South towards the top of the page. Britain is shown as far north as the river Tweed. A large sailing ship decorates the Bay of Biscay. German text to verso. Originally a scholar studying Hebrew, Greek and mathematics, Munster (1489-1552) eventually specialised in mathematical geography and cartography. He is best known for his edition of the "Geographia", a translation of Ptolemy's landmark geographical text. Munster's version is illustrated with maps based on Ptolemy's calculations, but also, in recognition of the increased geographical awareness of the period, contains "modern" maps including the first set of maps of each continent.
