Book Description Straßburg, Johannes Schott, or 1520, 1513, 1520. Condition: sehr guter Zustand. Zacharakis, C.G.: A Catalogue of Printed Maps of Greece, 1477-1800, No. 2782/1823; Karrow, R. W. Jr.: Mapmakers of the Sixteenth century and their maps, 80/50. - Frühe Holzschnittkarte Kretas von M. Waldseemüller aus dem Jahre 1513/1520. Eine der seltenen modernen Karten der berühmtesten Ptolemaeus Ausgaben. Die von Zacharakis als Typ C bezeichnet Darstellung von Kreta diente bis Ende des 18. Jahrhunderts als Vorlage unzähliger Karten. Christos G. Zacharakis über diese Karte: Type C, late Ptolemaic (pl. V) has been widely used from the 1513 Strassbourg edition of the Geographia to the second half of the 18th century after it was decisively promoted by Ortelius and Mercator. Die großformatige Holzschnittkarte stammt aus dem ersten sogenannten Modernen Atlas des berühmten Kosmographen Martin Waldseemüller. Der Atlas - betitelt GEOGRAPHIE OPUS NOVISSIMA TRADUCTIONE E GRECORUM ARCHETYPIS - wurde von Johann Schott in Strassburg im Jahre 1513 gedruckt und enthält neben den traditionellen 27 ptolemäischen Karten aus der Ulmer Ausgabe von 1482 auch 20 detaillierte Regionalkarten, weshalb der Atlas auch als eine der bedeutendsten Ptolemaeus Ausgaben angesehen wird. 1520 entstand die zweite Auflage bei Schott, gedruckt von den selben Holzstöcken. Wiederaufgelegt durch Laurent Fries und Johannes Grüninger mit verkleinerten Karten in den Jahren 1522 und 1525. - Insgesamt leicht gebräunt, zwei kleine Wurmlöcher im Meer, etwas fleckig. Kräftiger, schöner Abdruck, sehr gutes Exemplar. - The prototype map of the modern Crete from M. Waldseemuller of 1513/1520. One of the rare modern maps of the most famouse Ptolemy edition. This representation of Crete served as a prototype map for countless maps until the end of the 18th century. Christos G. Zacharakis about this map: Type C, late Ptolemaic (pl. V) has been widely used from the 1513 Strassbourg edition of the Geographia to the second half of the 18th century after it was decisively promoted by Ortelius and Mercator. This map comes from the so called first Modern Atlas by the most famous of all early sixteenth-century cosmographers Martin Waldseemuller, since it is the first Ptolemy edition with twenty new regional maps beside the traditional twenty-seven Ptolemaic maps derived from the 1482 Ulm edition. The Atlas is titled GEOGRAPHIE OPUS NOVISSIMA TRADUCTIONE E GRECORUM ARCHETYPIS published by Johannes Schott in Strassburg 1513 and is one of the most important edition of Ptolemy Atlases. In 1520 a second edition of the atlas was printed by Schott from the same woodcut blocks. It was reissued 1522 and 1525 by Laurent Fries and Johannes Gruninger with size reduced maps. - Minor browning, some occasional marginal spotting, two small wormholes. Very stong and good impression. Very good condition. Seller Inventory # 11469_0
