Africa Tertia pars Terrae
Magdeburg,, 1581 - Seltene, frühe Holzschnittkarte von Afrika von Heinrich Bünting. Die Form Südafrikas ist ungewöhnlich spitz ausgeführt. Der Nil wird durch mehrere Quellflüsse gespeist. Im Meer erheben sich eine Galeone, ein Wassermann und ein Wasservogel. Die Karte stammt aus Büntings Werk Itinerarium Sacrae Scriptura. Rückseitig mit deutschem Text. - Bugfalte oben und unten hinterlegt. Guter, klarer Abdruck. - Rare and early woodcut map of Africa by Heinrich Bunting. The map has an unusual shape, tapering to a narrow angle in the south. Several rivers appear in West Africa and as tributaries to the Nile. Mountain chains and various kingdoms are mentioned. The sea is engraved in narrow wavy lines, with a galleon, a merman and above him a sea-bird. Bunting's work Itinerarium Sacrae Scriptura was essentially a theological commentary with other maps of great curiosity. German text on verso. - Tears in upper and lower centrefold backed. Strong and clear impression.
