MÜNSTER, Sebastian (1488-1552)
[Basel: Heinrich Petri in the 'Geographia Universalis', 1542. Woodcut map, in excellent condition. The first state of the earliest reasonably obtainable map to focus on the depiction of the entire continent of Africa, and a veritable masterpiece of Renaissance cartography This highly important map represents the earliest reasonably obtainable map to depict the entire continent of Africa. Africa XVIII, Nova Tabula , is a fantastic visual synergy of archaic imagination and recent exploration. The overall shape of the continent is quite well defined, having been extensively explored by the Portuguese since the time of Prince Henry the Navigator in the mid-fifteenth-century, a point highlighted by the appearance of a caravel in the lower part of the map. Africa's various kingdoms are denoted by pictorial symbols of a crown and sceptre. Following Ptolemaic tradition, the Nile has its source in a series of lakes that lie at the foot of the mysterious Mountains of the Moon. The land around the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa is embellished by the appearance of an elephant, and exotic parrots occupy trees in Angola. Most amusingly, near the coast of east Africa, the "Monoculi," or one-eyed man imagined by Classical writers sits in wait for some hypothetical European visitor. Münster was a brilliant polymath and one of the most important intellectuals of the Renaissance era. Educated at Tübingen, his surviving college notebooks, Kollegienbuch , reveal a mind of insatiable curiosity, especially with regards to cosmography. Münster later became a professor of Hebrew at … [Click Below for Full Description]

MÜNSTER, Sebastian (1488-1552)
[Basel: Heinrich Petri, 1542]. Woodcut map (in excellent condition, faint soiling at centerfold). 11 3/4 x 15 1/8 inches. A very rare first-state example of Münster's highly-important map of the New World, from the second edition of his celebrated Geographia Universalis, and an iconic masterpiece of Renaissance cartography. This map, Novae Insule XVII, Nova Tabula, which is of great epistemological importance, depicts the immense lands newly discovered in the Western Hemisphere during the preceding two generations. Sebastian Münster's use of the term "Americam" on the map, in addition to the hemisphere's designation as the "Novus Orbis" (New World), helped to solidify America as the name for the New World. This is also the earliest printed map to use the name "Mare Pacificum" for the Pacific Ocean, first discovered by Balboa in 1513. South America is much more clearly defined and accurately drawn than North America, as it was the object of greater European exploration. The Portuguese flag is shown flying over the South Atlantic and the Spanish banner flies over her possessions in the Caribbean, alluding to the papal Edict of Tordesillas (1494), which divided the world between the two Iberian powers. The Straits of Magellan are named and Magellan's ship, Victoria, is shown in the Pacific Ocean. A woodcut of a pyre with a leg hanging from a tree limb identifies the region where "Canibali" live in the eastern bulge of South America, now known as Brazil, in light of the vivid tales of Amerigo Vespucci. The area now encompassed by Argentina is called "Regio Gigan … [Click Below for Full Description]

MÜNSTER, Sebastian (1488-1552)
[Basel: Heinrich Petri in the 'Geographia Universalis', 1542]. Woodcut, in excellent condition. 11 3/4 x 15 1/8 inches. The rare first state of Münster's highly important map of Asia, a veritable masterpiece of Renaissance cartography Münster's India Extrema, XIX, Nova Tabula is a very elegant map, that embraces most of Asia, from the Persian Gulf to the Far East. Although largely based on Ptolemy's ancient template, it includes some advancements gleaned from recent Portuguese discoveries. The outlines of the Indian subcontinent, between the Indus and the Ganges rivers begins to take a recognizable form, with "Zaylon" (Sri Lanka) correctly appearing as its own island. The Portuguese outpost of Goa and Calicut, the first place where Vasco da Gama landed in 1497, are depicted. Further to the east "Taprobana" (the name Ptolemy gave to Sri Lanka) is also designated as "Sumatra.".On the adjacent Malay Peninsula is the important trading port of "Malaqua" (Malacca). Java is also portrayed, but is depicted as two separate islands. "Moloca" (The Moluccas), the Spice Islands that were a major point of contention between Spain and Portugal are shown. The resolution of the dispute was the official purpose of Magellan's epic circumnavigation. The depiction of "Cathay" (China) is shown to be largely predicated on Venetian lore. The seas to the south of the map are adorned with a large sea monster and a mermaid with a bifurcated tail. Münster was a brilliant polymath and one of the most important intellectuals of the Renaissance era. Educated at Tübingen, his survi … [Click Below for Full Description]
