click here to view a large version in a separate window

This beautifully simple woodblock map of Britain combines Munster's updated cartography with the traditional Ptolemaic depiction of Scotland bearing eastwards. The map focuses primarily on England and Wales as the northern part of Scotland and the western part of Ireland are cut off by the borders. Only major cities are located and the topography is simplified. A small ship sails in the North Sea. German text on verso. With attractive and appropriate wash hand colour.
