Article description

Woodcut map, finely hand colored in wash by a later hand. Verso illustrated with a decorative colored woodcut illustration. This map depicts a the region of Iran, Pakistan and Afghanistan with the river delta of the Indus River and the Indian Ocean. Various cities and mountain ranges are as well shown on the map, noted at the lower right side. 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.
