Article descriptionWoodcut map from "Geographiae Libri VIII..." published in Basel at Heinrich Petri. 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 very interesting map which shows parts of Syria, Persia and the Caspian Sea. Within the map are rivers, place names, mountain chains are schematic drawn, place names with miniature city views.
