Anglia II Nova Tabula

Short Description

Stock No. 3112

Woodcut map of England for the fourth edition of Sebastian Müster's Geographia Universalis, Basle, 1552.  Image 285 x 360 mm., sheet about 305 x 385 mm.  Central vertical fold.  Later hand-colouring.  The first separately printed map of England, probably based on the Gough map of the mid fourteenth century.

Münster (1489-1552) was a German geographer, mathematiciam and Hebraist, who published editions and translations of the Bible as well as Hebrew grammars, and whose major work, the Geographia Universalis, a comprehensive and detailed description of the known world, was perhaps the most important and influential geography of the sixteenth century.  Its production involved the assistance of over a hundred and twenty collaborators.  In all, Münster published 142 maps, both Ptolemaic and contemporary, in his lifetime.
