A handsome copy of one of the great illustrated books of the 16th century: the work  “taught nearly three generations of laymen most of what they knew about the world beyond their native places” (Strauss).  Containing over 1000 woodcuts Cosmographie's decpictions of cities were unusually accurate  “They were based on first-hand information gathered from the local officials of each town or place described, and were some of the earliest large-scale plans of cities to be published… It has been said that the Cosmography of Sebastian Munster ‘will remain an important source for the history of civilization of the period’” (The World Encompassed 272).
