Woodcut map, finely hand colored in wash by a later hand. Verso illustrated with a decorative colored woodcut illustration. Woodcut map, finely hand colored in wash by a later hand. Verso illustrated with a decorative colored woodcut illustration. A highly decorative woodcut map by famous mapmaker Sebastian Münster published in his Ptolemy edition 1552 in Basel at Heinrich Petri. The decorative woodcut bordures verso were probably cut by the famous 16th century woodcutter Hans Holbein. Nearly none of the captivating woodcut borders verso are repeating, they are mainly shaped by allegoric scenes, coat of arms or wonderful initials. A rare and early mid 16th century woodcut map showing the region between the Caspian Sea and the Persian Gulf in the south. The map depicts in the north west parts of Armenia, further Persia, parts of the Iraq and the Arabian desert. The interesting woodcut map has still miniature city views as engraved woodcut silhouettes, also rivers and mountain chains are schematic shown. An interesting and beautiful map for the collector of rare maps of Central Asia and Persia.
