Description :A rare incunable World map from a reduced edition of Schedel's 'Nuremberg Chronicle', published by Schonsperger from his 'Liber Cronicarum...'.
German text. This map rarely makes it on to the open market and this is rare opportunity to add it to a collection.
This small woodblock map was the subject of a number of articles in the journal of historical cartography, Imago Mundi, beginning in 1949, At that time an illustration of the map appeared under the heading ďAn unknown world map,Ē accompanied by a plea calling for any information that would help identify it.

The following year, a letter to the editor identified the map as a reduced version of Schedelís world map from the Nuremberg Chronicle, 1493. The issue was taken up again several years later, when Marcel Destombes responded with an article noting that the map was from a reduced edition of the Chronicle, published in Augsberg by Johann Schonsperger in 1496.

Shirely (World) 20.
Condition : Wood block map with letter press. Size of map 105x145mm. Paper slightly browned with some stronger discolouration in the lower right; some marginal tears not affecting text or image; one small paper thinning within image.
