Sebastian Munster's 'modern' map of the British Isles was produced for his "Geographia" in 1540 with later issues thereafter (the map was also published in Munster's "Cosmographia"). The map shows an up-to-date outline of the British Isles with geographical information in advance of any previous published items. Shirley suggests in "Early Printed Maps Of The British Isles" that Munster was able to work from a copy of the Gough map to produce this example. North is oriented to the left of the page and major towns and rivers are named. The map extends northwards as far as Edinburgh and the east coast of Ireland is also shown with Dublin named. The royal flag is planted firmly at Walflet (today's Wainfleet perhaps) on the east coast. A small table at upper left gives both English and Latinized versions of county names. The verso of the map displays a Latin title in a decorative surround. Minor centrefold thinning backed otherwise a good example in a s strong impression.
