Tabu Moder Anglie & Hiber : M. Waldseemuller / L. Fries

click here to view a large version in a separate window

Martin Waldseemuller's issue of "Geographia", published in 1513 and 1520, was one of the most important atlases of the first half of the sixteenth century as the Ptolemaic body of maps were complimented by new "modern" outlines. This 'modern' outline is a distinct improvement on the Ptolemaic outline. Waldseemuller (copied here by Fries) has corrected the slanting Scotland and Cornwall, and has added many new towns, most notably along the southern and eastern coasts of England and Ireland - areas well known to European sailors and merchants. London and the Thames are named in the interior, along with the hills dividing Scotland and England. However, contrary to the modern concept of the cartography, the mythical island of "Brazil" appears off the west coast of Ireland. This example appeared in Lorenz Fries's slightly reduced size editions of Waldseemuller's maps published first in 1522 and here in a strong printing of the 1535 issue. A good impression of this important map with its title in an elegant scroll above, negligible small areas of centrefold repaired with no loss of any significant printed detail.
