"Taprobanum Insulum Hodie Vocant Sumatrum......" Copper etching from: "Geographia" by Claudio Ptolemy. Originally edited and published by Willibald Pirckheimer. This edition, which comprises all 64 maps of the "B" edition, including the "New World", was published by Josephus Meletius 1562 in Venice.

For historians this map is more than interesting. The shape, of course, does not correspond to that of modern Sumatra. Neither do the names of towns, rivers and mountains, but that is a challenge for those who know Sumatra to investigate! On the left is an elephant in front of a tree and the line below the elephant going across the map is the Equator. Verso: Text in Italian about history and geography of Sumatra. Map is most likely Sri-Lanka.

A very fine crease in upper left reaches to tree. Light browning of centerfold. The map is otherwise in Very Good condition.

"Die Länder Asie nach irer gelegenheit biss in Indiam werden in diser tafel verzeichnet"

Woodcut. Published in a very early edition of "Cosmographia" by Sebastian Muenster (1488-1552)

Basel, 1553

Asia as a continent in almost its entire dimension. A very early fascinating view at terra incognita. The charm of this map is the fumbling and fact-groping of huge land masses never visited nor measured nor described by geographers or travelers. Much on this map is guessing, almost nothing based on knowledge

Cathay is the name Marco Polo used for China

The Philippines' description is: Archipelagus 7448 insularii

Siberia is India superior

India itself looks like a small appendix to a huge land mass

The map shows Russia, part of Arabia and Ethiopia and North Norway in the West and does not quite reach over to Kamechatka in the East. South East Asia quite prominent. Great early map to compare with reality!

Light general age toning. Some little spots in margins. Lower margin has been partially reenforced.

The age patina in lower margin more intense.

"Asia wie es jetziger zeit nach den fuernemesten Herrschaften abgetheilet und beschriben ist". Woodcut by Sebastian Münster from the "Kosmographie". Basel, ca. 1550. Pleasant modern hand coloring.

Part of the charm of this very old map of Asia is that it is not so exact. The map stretches from Eygpt in the west to Japan and New Guinea in the east. The northern part of the map is more "sketchy". In the location of present-day Siberia is the Scythicum Sea. Central Asia by Sebastian Münster reaches as far north as Japan and Mongolia. The area around the Caspian Sea and Black Sea are more accurate, even though the Caspian Sea lies too far south. In the lower left corner is a framed inset with information about Asia. Verso: Text in German about Asia.

Corners are somewhat spotty. There is foxing along the lower half of the center fold. A repaired tear of 5 cm. in the lower margin runs parallel to the center fold and a 0.5 cm. missing piece of paper has been replaced. Inking in upper right corner. Overall age toning. Creasing on centerfold in lower margin. The overall condition of the map isgood for a map of this age.
