Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Münster, Sebastian. Cosmographiae universalis libri VI. Mit Holzschnitt-Titelbordüre, 14 doppelblattgr. Vortextkarten in Holzschnitt, 40 (3 gefalt., 37 doppelblgr.) Holzschnitt-Ansichten u. ca. 970 Textholzschnitten. Basel, Henricpetri, 1552. Folio. [12] Bll., 1162 S., [1] Bl. Ldr. um 1830 mit goldgepr. Rückenschild (etw. berieben, Deckel mit leichten Schabspuren). VD16 M 6716 - Burmeister 88. - Zweite lateinische Ausgabe. - 'Eines der grossen Sammelwerke, welche die geschichtlichen Wissensmengen verbreiteten und durch eine leidlich behende Sprache - mehr noch durch Holzschnittbilder - den wissens- und nutzbegierigen Massen von den Fürsten bis zu den Handwerkern die erweiterte Welt der Entdeckungsjahrhunderte zugänglicher machten (...). Es bildet der Gattung nach einen Übergang von den geschlossenen mittelalterlichen Enzyklopädien eines Vincenz von Beauvais oder Brunetto Latini, deren letzte (...) die Schedel'sche Weltchronik ist, zu den 'kuriösen Relationen' eines Eberhard Werner Happel (...) Auf wie vielen Rinnsalen, mit und ohne Namensnennung, Münster das Allgemeinwesen der beiden nächsten Jahrhunderte erreicht, befruchtet oder belastet hat, ist noch nicht untersucht.' (Friedrich Gundolf, Anfänge deutscher Geschichtsschreibung, S. 39). - Seine weite Verbreitung fand das Werk des Basler Hebraisten und Geographen vor allem wegen seiner Stadtansichten. Hatte die erste Ausgabe von 1544 lediglich 6 wirlichkeitsnahe Ansichten - neben den obligatorischen Pilgerzielen Rom und Jerusalem auch die Heimatstädte des Verfassers, Ingelheim und Basel, enthalten, nahm ihre Zahl mit jeder weiteren Auflage zu. Die Cosmographia avancierte damit zum Prototyp der 'Städtebücher' und leitete eine Entwicklung der Stadtdarstellung ein, die ihren Höhepunkt schließlich bei Merian erreichen sollte. - Exemplar mit stärkeren Gebrauchs- und Restaurierungsspuren: Titel gestempelt, aufgezogen u. mit hinterlegtem Eckabriss u. etw. Bildverlust, dadurch auch ohne das Portrait verso; die zweite Weltkarte mit grösserem Einriss, geschlossen mit Klebestreifen (dieser inzwischen gebräunt). Die S. 35/36, 189/190, 543/544 u. 841/842 mit grösseren Textverlusten hinterlegt, jeweils beigebunden ein entsprechendes Textbl. aus einem anderen Exemplar. Die grossen gefalt. Ansichten von Wien u. Worms ebenfalls aus einem anderen Exemplar ergänzt, die Ansicht von Frankfurt a. M. in den Seitenrändern beschnitten. - Durchgehend leichte Feuchtränder, zumeist im Bug, wenige Bll. mit stärkeren Feuchtflecken u. Randausbrüchen bzw. kl. Textverlusten. - Trotz der beschriebenen Mängel über weite Strecken gutes Exemplar mit den Holzschnitten in kräftigen Abdrucken. Münster, Cosmographia (1628 ?)

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Münster, Sebastian. La table des Isles neufes, lesquelles on appelle isles d'occident & d'Indie pour diuers regardz. Woodcut map. 25.2x33.8 cm. (10x13¼"), hinged to mat. Basel, Switzerland: 1540-[1556] One of the most influential early maps of the Americas, first issued as part of a series of modern, up to date maps in Münster's 1540 edition of Ptolemy's Geography, and included by him in his Cosmographia Universalis, first published in 1544. Although it was not the first map to use "America" as a designation for the New World, it was the appearance of the name in the Cosmographia, an immensely popular work which went into some forty editions over the next one hundred years, that cemented the usage for all time. Burden calls this continental map of America (as opposed to just portions) "the earliest of any note." Burden goes on to describe its various features in some detail: "The Portuguese flag is shown flying over the South Atlantic and the Spanish one over her possessions in the Caribbean. The Strait of Magellan are named again, and Mare pacificum appears for the first time on a printed map. Magellan's ship Victoria, the only survivor of five vessels, appears for the first time on a printed map. Marco Polo's influence can be seen with Zipangri (Japan) appearing three years before the earliest known contact with Europeans, and also his Archipelagus 7448 insularu. The Yucatan is still shown as an island and the lake at Temistitan is depicted emptying into the Gulf of Mexico. North America is not shown as accurately as the southern half of the continent, it had to a large extent been neglected so far by explorers. When Giovanni de Verrazzano, in the service of Francis I of France, passed by the Outer Banks of the Carolinas in 1524 he mistook Pamlico and Albemarle Sounds for the `Oriental Sea' that led to Cathay and the rich Spice Islands. Here Münster perpetuates this error and through the success of this book provided a huge impetus to the exploration of the region. The only placenames appearing here are C. Britonum, marking England's early explorations, Corterati, probably Newfoundland after the Corte Reals, and Terra florida. Francisca is named in honor of Francis I." The designation "America" occurs in the phrase "Insula Atlantica quam uo-/ cant Brasilii & Americam" in South America. The present example is Burden's state 7, from the 1556 (of 1560 French languaged edition of Münster's Cosmography, with "Temistitan" not present in Mexico. Very faint spots at left and right edges of image and at bottom, neat repair at lower centerfold, near fine, with crisp, clean impression.

Description: Münster, Sebastian. Typus Orbis Ptol. Descriptus. Woodcut map, later hand-coloring. 25.1x34 cm. (9¾X13¼"), hinged to mat. Basle: 1540-[c.1545] Map of the old world as delineated in the writings of Claudius Ptolemy. "Sebastian Münster was a Professor of Hebrew at Basle University and an eminent hebraist, mathematician and geographer. He produced his own edition of Ptolemy's Geographia in 1540, adding a number of significantly new maps to the modern section of the work. In the classical section is a Ptolemaic world map with a surround of clouds and windheads." This last is the present map, and Shirley notes that there were "further editions of the Geographia in 1541, 1542, 1545 and 1552. These were all printed in Basle with Latin text and carry a fine vertical crack line across the right-hand part of the map" which is present, under close examination, on the present map. On the verso, right-hand side, is a short Latin text beginning "Descriptio Orbis generalis...," in a small engraved box featuring a knight on horseback. Shirley 76. Neat repair along centerfold, a few light marginal stains, very good.
