This curious and decorative Utopia map was printed for the art dealer and publisher Daniel Funck at the end of the seventeenth century together with a comprehensive explanatory book, 'Erklarung der wunder-seltzamen Land-Charten Utopiae' by the military officer Johann Andreas Schnebelin in 1694.
Later editions of this map bear the names of Homann or Mattheus Seutter, but this edition states only "Author anonymus." Research by Reitinger suggests that it was created by Homann in Nuremberg.

Despite the name Utopia in the title this is not Thomas More's ideal society: Schlarraffenlandes is the German Fool's Paradise, a land of vice and debauchery, from a satire by Hans Sachs in the C16th.
Divided into 19 regions with such names as the Kingdom of Extravagance, Empire of Fat Stomachs, Land of Indolence and Land of Gluttony. To the north is the Terra Sancta Incognita (Unknown Land of Religion) where Jerusalem is shown shining from a mountaintop.
The large title cartouche is decorated by figures representing gambling, drunkenness, lust and extravagance.
Schlarraffenland is the German equivalent of the Land of Cockaigne, the imaginary land of idleness and luxury (famously depicted by Breughel in his painting of 1567).
