One of the most stunning large Sixteeenth century woodcut panoramas In this case a plan of Vienna from Sebastian Munster's "Cosmographia ...".
These panoramas are near impossible to find as the they were 2 sheets meant to be joined and usually one sheet was missing
Wolfgang Lazius, physician, historian and cartographer, supplied this view of his home city as viewed from the north. The date" 1548" and initials "HRMD" appearing at the lower centre and "HH" to the right identify the woodcutters as Hans Rudolph Manuel Deutsch and Heinrich Holzmuller. It seems likely that one probably executed the topography, the other the lettering and scrollwork, prominently displayed in the banner extending the full length of the image.
Excellent hand comour and and in excellent condition
