Title : Americae Sive Novi Orbis Nova Descriptio. Die newen inseln so hinder Hispaniam gegen Orient, bey dem landt Indie gelegen.
Map maker : MÜNSTER,S..
Date : Basle, Henri Petrie, 1588.
Size : 12.2 x 14.2 inches. / 31.0 x 36.0 cm.
Colouring : Attractively coloured

Description :Nicely coloured map of North and South America. Two elongated oval cartouches across the top with gothic German text and a finely decorated title cartouche to the bottom left. Inland is the mythical kingdom of Quivira with those of Anian and Tolm to the North and East from the descriptions of Marco Polo. Relief is shown pictorially. Despite the woodcut technique and its insertion of lettering the calligraphic lettering is amazingly elegant. South America has the bulge that is characteristic of this period.
This charming map was published in the 1588-edition of Sebastian Münster’s Cosmographia. After 1588, this map was only republished in the German editions of the Cosmographia of 1592, 1598, 1614, and 1628 and is thus comparatively rare.
Münster was de first to introduce a separate map for each of the four then known continents. The other 1588-maps of the continents, Europe, Africa, and Asia, are also offered in this auction, as well as the continents of the earlier Magnum Opus edition, the Cosmographia from 1550. ¤

Condition : Wide margins and authentic appearance. Minor toning and two binding pinholes in the blank margin professionally restored. This woodcut map is printed on better quality paper than many other examples of this map.
