Title : Europa Prima Pars Terrae Forma Virginis..
Map maker : BÜNTING,H..
Date : Magdeburg, ca. 1592.
Size : 10.2 x 13.6 inches. / 26.0 x 34.5 cm.
Colouring : Coloured.

Description :Desirable, famous and extremely rare issue of this famous map of Europe, depicted in the form of a Queen wearing her crown and in flowing robes.
This is a very rare issue of the map from a Czech edition. The original woodcut map was re-engraved on copper with a stippled sea and the inclusion of several additional embellishments including a coat of arms.
HISPANIA (Spain) is shown in the figure's crown in acknowledgment of its dominance. GALLIA (France) is the upper chest. GERMANIA is the bosom. ITALIA is Europe?s right arm, with SICILIA being the globus cruciger, the cross-bearing orb signifying world power throughout the Middle Ages.
DANIA (Denmark) is the left arm of Europe, holding what appears to be a ceremonial sword, another classic piece of regalia.
BOHEMIA (the Czech lands) is a circular area close to Europe?s stomach.
HVNGARIA (Hungary)
The British Isles are shown, but not integrated into the figure.

It has been argued that instead of a woman, the map represents Charles V of Spain.
Very rare. ¤

Condition : Copper engraving. Good margins. Two tiny worm holes in upper marginal title filled in. Generally in very good condition.

ID: 24786
