Title : Schwaben und Bayerlandt darbey auch Begriffen der Otenwald, Nortgow..
Map maker : MÜNSTER, S..
Date : Basle, S.H. Petrie, 1588.
Size : 12.2 x 14.2 inches. / 31.0 x 36.0 cm.
Colouring : Coloured

Description :An attractive early woodcut map A map of Swabia, one of the ten Imperial Circles of the Holy Roman Empire. Orientated with north at the bottom, it marks Strassburg, Bamberg and Lake Constance. Basel and the river Rhine is located at the right. Mountains, villages, churches and woods are attractively drawn pictorially. Fine calligraphic lettering and highly detailed engraving. A block-style title cartouche decorates the map.
This charming map was published in the 1588-edition of Sebastian Münster’s Cosmographia. After 1588, this map was only re-published in the German editions of the Cosmographia of 1592, 1598, 1614, and 1628 and is thus comparatively rare. Relief shown pictorially.
The 1550-edition of the Cosmographia is considered to be Münster’s Magnum Opus. The 1550-edition of this map is also offered in this auction (lot 93870).

This is a map from Sebastian Münster’s Cosmographiae, the first detailed, scientific, and popular description of the world. Münster originally intended to describe only Germany, but gradually he widened his scope to encompass all of Europe, and even the world. The scientifically most valuable sections are those which deal with Germany and Central Europe. Münster received the assistance of more than one hundred and twenty collaborators, who provided him with the most up-to-date information relating to the towns and places described.

Condition : Very good, small imperfections, mostly outside the printed area. Authentic appearance, clear impression, with margins as issued and minor toning. This woodcut map is printed on better quality paper than many other examples of this map.
