Contrafehtung Der Furnemen Statt Venedig ... : S. Munster

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A very attractive and early birds-eye plan-view of Venice and its lagoon with inset panels of German text. The calm waters of the Venice lagoon contrast in this woodblock with the roiling seas outside. The plan appeared in Sebastian Munster's renowned "Cosmographia ..." a voluminous work describing the whole world, its countries, people and history illustrated with town plans, country maps and views. One repaired tear, and lower right margin trimmed but expertly repaired.
