217 Matted Loose 1584 Die erst general Tafel die Beschreibung und den Circkel des gantzen Erdtrichs und Meers innhaltende

Early woodcut world map by Sebastian Münster. This 'modern' map of the world is an oval projection with a vigorous surround of clouds and lusty wind heads. German letterpress title on top, a beautiful woodcut title vignette on verso. This woodblock was prepared for the 1550 edition of Sebastian Münster's Cosmographia. With the woodcutter's initials DK, identified as those of David Kandel in the lower left-hand corner. A sailing ship and several fierce sea monsters occupy the oceans.

The Americas taking on an unusual shape, North America is labled Terra Florida and is almost separated by a deep cleft of water, often referred to as the Sea of Verazano. Further north a huge landmass extending as far as and joining onto Scandinavia. The west coast of North America is hypothetically drawn and appears on the right side of the map. It carries the name Temi stitan, which is generally used to denote Mexico. In Africa, the twin sources of the River Nile terminating in a range of mountains. Unidentified islands Grisonum and Calensuan are placed in the proximity of Australia. The hypothetical continent Terra Australis is present but small, only serving to form the Magellan Strait.

The geographical sources of this map is a combination of information derived from Verrazzano's explorations of 1522-24, where the waters of Chesapeake Bay were mistaken for the Indian Ocean and reports of Cartier's voyages of 1534-35, who explored the Gulf of St. Lawrence and was hoping to discover a western passage.

97 Coloured Loose 1634 Five Continents

[Five Continents]: The world :Africa [Nova & Acvrata Totivs Africae Tabvla]: North & South America [Nova Acvrata Totivs Americae Tabvla]: Asia [Nova & Acvrata Totivs Asiae Tabvla]]: Europe [Nova Acvrata Totivs Evropae Tabvla]. [Venice: Stefano Scolari, c. 1646].

A set of five maps by the Dutch cartographer Willem Janszoon Blaeu and covers Europe, Africa, Asia and America, and has a single map of the world. Decorated with a title cartouche, compass rose, ships and sea monsters, each map is bordered in  typical Blaeu fashion with local inhabitants in appropriate 17th century dress. Each territory is shown in different colours.. The world map was originally a stand alone publication it was included in  Nova Totius Terrarum Geographica and has been described as one of the most famous world maps of the Baroque Era. They were also included in the expensive Blaeu’s books Atlas Appendix and Atlas Novus.  Both Pieter Van der Keere and Johnann Jansson, produced almost identical copies of the map in their own collections, as did Henricus Hondius in his 1633 atlas.

Willem Janzoon Blaeu had access to the most up to date geographical information of the dy as he held the position of Chief Cartographer at the Dutch East India Company in Amsterdam. There are many important features such as a tribure to Amerigo Vespucci and his reported “discovery” of America.  The Southern Hemisphere is referred to as “Terra Australis Incognita” and is shown as a very large balancing continent as it was thought that there was a very large northern mass.. The maps detail depictions of the Sun, the Moon and the Planets and the seven wonders of the ancient world including the hanging Gardens of Babylon, the Colossus at Rhodes, the Pyramids, the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, the Temple of Diana, the Statue of Jupiter and the Lighthouse at Alexandria. The four human labeled elements of fire, air water and earth are shown together with the four seasons.

In all, Blaeu’s set is an outstanding work and demands a premier position in any collection

90 Coloured Framed 1651 Orbus Vetus cum origine magnarum in eo gentium a fiiliis et nepotius noe
Danckwerth and Meyer published an atlas of maps of the German province of Schleswig-Holstein in which they included this classical representation of the eastern hemisphere, which stands alone without a corresponding map of the western hemisphere. The engraver, Christian Rothgiesser, both signed and dated this finely drawn map. The lower two cartouches list the descendants of Noah. Presumably, the tracks on the map are the peregrinations of Noah’s heirs in their quest to repopulate the earth. Remargined at top and bottom; rebacked. Shirley, 388.

77 Framed 1562 Ptolemy Tabula Asiae X
Ceylon, now Sri Lanka, was known in the 16th century as Tapobrana and first called that in the Geographia of Claudius Ptolemy but was continually confused with other areas – particularly Sumatra because of latitude errors of early navigation.
This map was first issued in 1561. That plate is recognizable by the fact that the pressmark runs off the plate. A second state corresponding to the current example was issued in 1574. This was an independent plate. A third and final plate was issued in 1599.
