Title : MOSCOVIA, QUATENUS MOENIBUS INCLUDITUR ARX VOCATUR EXTRA MOENIA INGENS LIGNEA-rum aedium numerus, civitas dicitur.
Map maker : HERBERSTEIN, S..
Date : Basel, 1556.
Size : 9.3 x 11.8 inches. / 23.5 x 30.0 cm.
Colouring : uncoloured

Description :One of the earliest obtainable town-plans of Moscow from the first authentic account of Russia written by a western traveler: "Rerum Moscoviticarum commentarii Sigismundi liberi baronis in Herberstain, Neyperg, et Guettenhag. Russiae, et quae nunc eius metropolis est, Moscoviae, brevissima descriptio. Chorographia denique totius imperi, Basileae 1556, S. 244."
The book remains a significant source for understanding the geography, politics, religion and social conditions of sixteenth century Russia.
Sigismund von Herberstein made two visits to Russia. In 1517-1518 he traveled as a diplomatic envoy of the Holy Roman Emperor, Maximilian I. He returned in 1526-1527 as an ambassador of Ferdinand I, King of Bohemia and Hungary. His combined visits amounted to a period of sixteen months during which he was able to see "... the land and city of Moscow and much of their manners and customs... Thus I can bear witness not merely from hearsay but as one who has seen partly for himself..." (Translation by J B C Grundy: 1969, p15).

Rare early plan of Moscow!

Condition : Very good dark impression. With some agetoning, foxing and staining. A few folds and creases. Short repaired tears to margins not extending into engraved area! Centerfold with soft wear. A good example of this rare plan!
