"Typus Orbis A Ptol Descriptus"

Published by Munster, 1540

This superb reproduction of the original hand colored woodcut map of the World entitled, "Typus Orbis A Ptol Descriptus", was published by Munster circa 1540. The fact that this is one of the earliest maps attests to its glaring inaccuracies. Practically everything east of Arabia is conjecture.

This reproduction map is decorated with the obligatory sea monsters and cherubic figures characteristic of Munster woodcuts.
