MÜNSTER, Sebastian. - Constantinopel

MÜNSTER, Sebastian. - Constantinopel
Constantinopel - MÜNSTER, Sebastian.
Click image to zoom old map image in.

Title : Constantinopel.
Map maker : MÜNSTER, Sebastian..
Date : Basel, H.Petri, ca. 1550.
Size : 15.0 x 7.9 inches. / 38.0 x 20.0 cm.
Colouring : Coloured.

Description :A detailed bird's-eye view of the 'Golden Horn' of Istanbul (Constantinople). The city plan depicts the markets, homes, palaces and churches, including the famous Hagia Sophia, shown prior to the addition of the last two minarets in the late 16th century.
On the Bosphorus Strait are dozens of large ships sailing out to sea. This is a very appealing medieval view with German text below and on verso.

The 'Cosmographia' is famous for its many highly attractive double - or even four-page cityscapes. Many of these illustrations are remarkable for their almost house-for-house level of accuracy, and as a collection, the uniformity of quality was unprecedented at that time.
The level of detail accomplished by the artists who prepared the woodblocks is amazing: children play, soldiers drill, fishermen and farmers work, and criminals dangling from the gallows. We see ships on nearby waterways, or in battle, windmills, waterwheels, lighthouses, vineyards, and of course the majestic city walls.

Condition : Large margins, strong paper, and in fine condition given its age.

ID: 82638
