Title : Der Statt Cusco / so die fuernembste im Land Peru / Il Cuscho Citta Principale della Provincia del Peru..
Map maker : MÜNSTER, Sebastian..
Date : Basel, H.Petri, ca. 1550.
Size : 10.8 x 14.8 inches. / 27.4 x 37.6 cm.
Colouring : Coloured.

Description :An early woodcut view of Cusco (Cuzco) in Peru by Sebastian Munster on a full double sheet. One of the earliest views of a city in the 'New World'. Verso an early woodcut plan of Mexico City, showing the city on the lake and centred on the plaza with a number of buildings noted.
Several figures are shown inside the city walls and on the hillside and roads lead into the city. The block title is in a ribbon banner in the sky above the countryside, with a second title above top neat-line "Die Statt Cusco..." Plus a nice plan of Mexico City ("Der Statt Themistitan...") is 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.
In this auction we offer among others the city scapes of Paris, Istanbul, Rome, Vienna, Florence, Jerusalem, and several more.

Condition : Large margins, strong paper, and in fine condition. Lightly age toned.
