Wood block print engraved by the famous engravers Jost Amman and Virgil Solis - with their initials in lower bottom of the map. This somewhat curious map of Europe, Africa, and Asia is to be found in apocalyptic literature originally emanating from Wittenberg in 1530 or even 1529. One of the first impressions of the map was used by the printer Hans Lufft to illustrate two works: one a commentary on the prophet Daniel by Martin Luther (1530) and another linking the vision of Daniel with the assaults of the Turks on the perimeters of Christian Europe at the time.

The wood cut map is showing the four beasts of Daniel's Dream Map..
According to Ernst Gallner this is the 7th version and second block: this edition of the map is slightly smaller than the first edition. For this 1564 edition, the woodblock was re-cut and surrounded in an elaborate picture-frame style border. (116x154mm)
The block was used by printers in Cologne, Frankfurt, London and Antwerp from 1564 till 1607. Set in a page with text above and below the map (page size 370x230mm.)

There are fourteen different versions of Danielís Dream Map, with twenty printing blocks. All the versions are produced in woodcut technique.
