The seas are filled with sea monsters and sailing ships. According to van der Heijden after the map of Europe by Waldseemüller-Münster. Originally engraved in 1548 Included in "Landtaflen. Hierinn findst du lieber Läser schöner recht und wolgemachter Landtaflen XII namlich ein Allgemeine Europae demnach etlich besondere als dess Tütschenlands Franckreychs und der allgemeinen Eygnoschafft. . ." The maps are prepared by Johannes Stumpf (1500-1576) and the maps are engraved by Heinrich I. Vogtherr (1490-1556) from Strassburg.
The atlas was basically the first atlas of Switzerland and one of the first, if not the first, national atlases of any European country.
In 1548 Stumpff published his famous chronicle of Switzerland which included 23 maps. (10 from Honter's Rudimenta cosmographica, Zurich 1546, and 13 new ones).In 1562 the present atlas was first published containing all these 13 maps. In 1566 a second edition was issued without the world map on the title page.
