Contemporary hand-coloured woodcut, 37,8x40,3cm Ulm (1482) - 1486 On the reverse one page text including the painted initial "Q".While the Ulm editions present a new "modern" map of Scandinavia and the North (see no. 32) the publishers continued to include the traditional Ptolemy map of the Northern Europe. The Ptolemy text refers to four "Scandian islands" and a "Scandia" placed north of Germany, east of Jutland. This was how the outermost North was depicted on the traditional Ptolemy maps and described in the ancient text.. Excellent. W.B.
