Title : La table des Isles neufves, lequelles on appelle isles d'occident & d'Indie pour divers regardz.
Map maker : MÜNSTER, S.
Date : Basel, 1552.
Size : 10.6 x 13.2 inches. / 27.0 x 33.5 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured.

Description :The rare 1552 edition of Münster's map showing all of North and South America. Münster's map is the earliest map to show all of the continent of America and the first to name the Pacific Ocean (Mare Pacificum). The depiction of North America is dominated by one of the most dramatic geographic misconceptions to be found on early maps-the so-called Sea of Verrazzano.
The Pacific cuts deeply into North America so that the part of the coastline at this point is a narrow isthmus between two oceans. This was the result of Verrazzano mistaking the waters to the west of the Outer Banks, the long barrier islands along North Carolina, as the Pacific. The division of the New World between Spain and Portugal Spain and Portugal is recognized on the map by the Castille and Leon flag planted in Puerto Rico, here called Sciana.

The map includes a very early appearance of the Straits of Magellan, along with his ship Victoria in the Pacific. Japan called Zipangi.
The Yucatan Peninsula is shown as an Island. Lake Temistan empties into the Caribbean. The map depicts cannibals in South America and names Florida.
The map depicts cannibals in South America and names Florida.

The present edition is from the first French edition of Munster's Cosmographia and can be distinguished from other later French editions by the presence of the place name "Temistan" in Central America and the title "La table des Isles neufves, lequelles on appelle isles d'occident & d'Indie pour divers regardz" of the map.
