Anglia : S. Munster

Set in a page of German text from Sebastian Munster's "Cosmographia" this map shows the British Isles with an eastwards slanting Scotland. This depiction of the British Isles has similarities with the Ptolemaic model - also showing an eastward slanting Scotland - but is in fact a rather primitive-looking "modern" map. The nomenclature cited varies from edition to edition of the block - here Edinburgh, London, Oxford, Dover are the only towns named along with Cornwall, Hibernia, Wallia, Scotia and Anglia. An attractively coloured example.
