Article description

Woodcut hand colored in wash, published in Sebastian Münster's 'Cosmographia' around 1578. German text edition. Decorative fine map of Cyprus in the eastern Mediterranean Sea. The large woodcut map depicts Cyprus and the neighboring Holy Land. The German text page verso is relating to Sebastian Munster's description of the Holy Land and is equipped with a woodcut illustration in the centre with coat of arms of Jerusalem. The 'Cosmographia' by Sebastian Münster was one of the most richest illustrated books with geographical content describing the world in the mid of the 16th century. It was published in Basel from 1544 onwards up to 1628 in various editions and different languages. Its content was enlarged from edition to edition to provide the reader with the newest information.
