A magnificent replica of the maps of this master of universal cartography, which in their time proved to be a beautiful and precious help for travellers.
16th Century. Private Collection.
In addition to the five bifolios which are hand-coloured and comprise the clover leaf map of the world, Europe, Asia, Africa and the eastern Mediterranean, this edition also features 12 black and white maps.
Published in German, Latin, Dutch, Danish, Swedish, Czech and English, it was widely used until the middle of the 18th century. This huge success can be understood only by placing the fantastic imagery of his maps in the context of symbolic Western cartography.
Presented in a slipcase, accompanied by a study volume.
Limited edition of 898 numbered copies with notarial certificate.
