Europa nach Gelegenheit unserer Zeit New Beschrieben.
Woodcut. Printed area 320 x 360mm (12½ x 14"). Slight creasing.
A woodcut map of Europe, copied from Ortelius's map of 1570, replacing the famous upside-down map of Europe in editions of Munster's 'Cosmographia' from 1588. Sebastian Münster (1488-1552) was a Christian Hebraist scholar as well as a cartographer and cosmographer. His 'Cosmographia', first published in 1544, is the earliest German description of the world.
