About this Item: S. Münster, Basle, 1550. Leaf. Condition: Very Good. 12 1/2" x 15 1/2" [32cm x 39.5cm] folio leaf [double-page], museum framed. Wonderful map of Florence from the c. 1550 'Cosmographia', by Sebastian Münster (1488-1552), the seminal work of early geographical compendia, featuring woodcuts from such renowned artists as Hans Holbein the Younger, Urs Graf, Hans Rudolph Manuel Deutsch, and David Kandel. This bird's eye view of Florence is exceptional and is in Very Good condition. Deaccessioned from the Andrew Dickson White Museum of Art, Cornell University. In a simple black wood frame [17" x 21"], under glass, without museum markings [as others from this single acquisition of several pieces were]. Leaf is tipped in and unmatted. Well preserved, with some age-toning overall, darker at the extreme edges. The fold is visible, as would be expected, but is minimal. A nice early map of Florence. The volume from which this leaf came fetches $60,000 and more at auction. Note: There are now artists specializing in applying period-style watercolor to such woodcuts, greatly enhancing their visual appeal; this map would be a good candidate for coloring, I believe. *Photos may show distortions (lens curvature, angled view, reflections, etc.) as the item is under glass.

Condition: Very Good. 1628 MAP City of Cheb CZECH Republic Sebastian Münster Cosmographia Prague Eger Sebastian Münster (1488 1552), was a German cartographer, cosmographer, and a Christian Hebraist scholar. His work, the Cosmographia from 1544, was the earliest German description of the world. The Cosmographia by Sebastian Münster (1488 1552) from 1544 is the earliest German description of the world. It had numerous editions in different languages including Latin, French (translated by François de Belleforest), Italian, English, and Czech. The last German edition was published in 1628, long after his death. The Cosmographia was one of the most successful and popular books of the 16th century. It passed through 24 editions in 100 years. This success was due to the notable woodcuts (some by Hans Holbein the Younger, Urs Graf, Hans Rudolph Manuel Deutsch, and David Kandel).

About this Item: [Heinrich Petri,] [1559.], [Basel:], 1559. Page 905. Single leaf. Minor bleed through on corners from mounting. Mounted on larger plain leaf. Suitable for framing. ?At page 905 is text and the portrait of a monster who was born at Cracow in February, 1547, and lived three hours. It is a boy whose feet and hands terminate in four duck-like webs instead of fingers and toes. There grows out of each knee and out of each elbow a dog?s head, being four in all, while from each of his breasts protrudes the head of a ram. At the bottom of the breast bone in his belly is an extra pair of eyes; a forked tail waves up to his head. He has a long and flexible elephant?s proboscis in place of an ordinary nose; large and round, saucer-shaped eyes, and an extra pair of ears growing out of the corner of his eyes, which, as well as the ears in their usual position, are formed like that if a rabbit.?
