Description

Property from a Distinguished Private Collection

WALDSEEMÜLLER, MARTIN

Orbis typus universalis iuxta hydrographorum traditionem. [Strassburg: Johann Schott, 1513]


Woodcut map of the world on two sheets joined at the center (totaling 17 3/8 x 22 3/4 in.; 439 x 578 mm); trimmed close, costing bits of the neat line at top and bottom, a very little slight marginal soiling. Handsomely framed with UVIII Plexiglass.


The "Admiral's map": Waldseemüller's monumental modern map of the world from the celebrated 1513 Strassburg edition of Ptolemy's Geography, so named because the delineation of the New World was supposedly based on the observations of Christopher Columbus.
