Description :A famous wood block map, cut by David Kandel. His initials identify this block as the second version of the modern world map to be used in the Cosmographia , that great compendium of Renaissance knowledge. The map was to become the standard view of the world until Ortelius published his in Antwerp in 1570. The Straits of Verrazano almost cut Terra Florida in half: Zipangri appears in a narrow Pacific Ocean just off the coast of North America. Monsters and Magellan's ship occupy the vast empty sea and the oval projection is surrounded by clouds and twelve windheads.
An exciting map, published only 79 years after Columbus!.
