Description :This is Sebastian Munster's interesting and detailed double-page map of the Holy Lands from his Cosmographia.
The map shows from Sidon and the land of the Phoenicians in the north to Gaza in the south with numerous Biblical sites and a number of vignettes. The map contains an insert at the top right with a description of the Holy Lands in Latin. This map is orientated with west at the top.
This map first appeared in Munster's Geographia of 1540. This particular map came from a German edition of Munster's Cosmographia of 1572. Munster based his map of the Holy Land on maps by Mercator and Ziegler (Karrow).
Sebastian Munster (1489-1552) was one of the three great cartographers who dominated the sixteenth century, along with Mercator and Ortelius, "and of these three, Munster probably had the widest influence in spreading geographical knowledge throughout Europe in the middle years of the century" (Moreland & Bannister, p.78). "[Munster's] Cosmographia... contained not only the latest maps and views of many well-known cities, but included an encyclopedic amount of detail about the known - and unknown - world and undoubtedly must have been one of the most widely read books of its time.
