Title : LA SECONDE TABLE GENERALE SELON PTOL..
Map maker : MÜNSTER, Sebastian..
Date : Basel, ca 1552.
Size : 9.8 x 13.3 inches. / 25.0 x 33.9 cm.
Colouring : Coloured.

Description :A beautiful, full colour example of Sebastian Münster's first map of the ancient World, based on Ptolemy's work. Showing 12 wind-heads and other classic pre-Columbian beliefs about the known world. French text on verso.
At the advent of printing in the 15th Century, the geographical works of Ptolemy were at their high-point. Virtually all of the printed maps in the late 15th and early 16th Century were based with varying degrees of accuracy on his works.
By the middle of the 16th Century, contemporary cartography was moving on to more modern depictions of the world and its regions but the teaching of Ptolemy were sufficiently important that they were incorporated into most general cartographic works for at least another 100 years.

Condition : Wood block with letter press. In good condition. With some restorations to the margins. Light soiling to margins.


ID: 83536
