NEUW INDIA ....

Code: M3178

Cartographer: Sebastian Munster

Date: 1544 Basel

Size: 25.5*34.5 cms

This is one of the earliest maps of the whole continent based on the recent geographical discoveries by Portuguese navigators. The Neuw in the title marks it as the earlist German text editions.

The outline of the Asian mainland is relatively well-established, but Munster omits the extreme northeast of Asia, still believed to be joined to the New World. Japan is also lacking, as it appeared on Munster's New World map instead. India appears as a peninsula and Sri Lanka, called Zalon, is correctly located. Cambay, Goa and Cannonore are all shown, reflecting the Portuguese presence on India's west coast, and this edition names Calechut, unlike the earlier examples of the map. Malacca is correctly located on the Malay Peninsula and the Indonesian island of Sumatra has inherited the name Taprobana from Sri Lanka, but also bears the name Sumatra. Java appears as two islands, Java Maior and Java Minor, shown north of the other. The famed Spice Islands of the Moluccas are located, but oddly shaped. An archipelago of 7448 islands lies off the eastern coastline of China, from the reports of Marco Polo. A huge sea monster and a fantastic two-tailed mermaid preside over the Indian Ocean.

Uncoloured as issued and in very good condition with no repairs etc.
