EUROPA DIE ERSTE TAFEL DISER CHRONICKEN ..

Code: M4063

Cartographer: STUMPF J

Date: 1548 /+ later Zurich

Size: 28 x 38.5 cms

Very rare map of Europe, published in the Schweitzer Chronik. The map is a derivative of the earlier map by Sebastian Münster, but is much rarer and far more sought because of all the decorations. This is a second later edition with new title.

Very early wood cut printed map of Europe with South to the top. In the lower left corner we see Poland, Livonia and parts of England and Ireland in the lower right corner. Portugal and the tip of Africa in upper right and Sardinia, Sicily and Peloponnesus in upper right too left.

The seas are filled with sea monsters and sailing ships. According to van der Heijden after the map of Europe by Waldseemüller-Münster. Originally engraved in 1548 Included in "Landtaflen. Hierinn findst du lieber Läser schöner recht und wolgemachter Landtaflen XII namlich ein Allgemeine Europae demnach etlich besondere als dess Tütschenlands Franckreychs und der allgemeinen Eygnoschafft. . ." The maps are prepared by Johannes Stumpf (1500-1576) and the maps are engraved by Heinrich I. Vogtherr (1490-1556) from Strassburg.

The atlas was basically the first atlas of Switzerland and one of the first, if not the first, national atlases of any European country.

Professionally laid down on old matching paper not noticeable...right hand tramlines in manuscript.

Very good hand colour
