"Europa das ein drittheil der Erden / nach Gelegenheit unsern Zeiten"

("Europe one third continent on earth as it shows itself in our times")

Hand-colored woodcut. Published in "Cosmographia". German edition.

By Sebastian Muenster. Basel, ca. 1550

This map is especially charming and interesting because of its south orientation. This "upside-down" look at Europe was not totally uncommon in the 16th century (we know also west- and east-oriented maps) as the orientation of maps was discussed among cartographers and "north-orientation" became the "normal" depiction in the 17th century, at a time when more atlases, charts and maps were produced.

Very nice and decorative map with high conversational value.

Except for some minimal vertical creasing hardly any traces of age and use. Just the usual and desirable patina of of almost 500 years of age!

Ca. 25 x 34 cm (ca. 9.8 x 13.4")
