Title : [No title] Daniel's Dream Map..
Map maker : LUFT,H. after.
Date : Hans Walther, Magdeburg 1545, 1550.
Size : 4.6 x 6.0 inches. / 11.8 x 15.2 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured.

Description :A somewhat curious map of Europe, Africa, and Asia is to be found in apocalyptic literature originally emanating from Wittenberg in 1530 or even 1529. The map was used by the printer Hans Luft to illustrate two works: one a commentary on the prophet Daniel by Martin Luther (1530) and another linking the vision of Daniel with the assaults of the Turks on the perimeters of Christian Europe at the time.

The wood cut map is showing the four beasts of Daniel's Dream Map.

According to Ernst Gallner this is the second wood block in a first state, prepared by Melchior Schwarzenberg or Moritz Schreiber and published "Biblia, De Propheten alle dudesch".
The map is a cut-out from a larger text sheet and has Dutch text on the verso.

The Wittenberg World Map, more commonly known in English as Daniel’s Dream Map, is probably the most mystical world map of all time.
At the time of its first publication as the sixty-first world map to go into print, it was, on the one hand, a depiction of the Old World, based on the Ptolemaic world view but including a number of recent Spanish and Portuguese discoveries, but on the other, a visualisation of the prophet Daniel’s apocalyptic dream of the four kingdoms.

With Dutch text on verso.
