About Sebastian Münsters Cosmographia:

The Cosmographia by Sebastian Münster (1488 – 1552) from 1544 is the earliest German description of the world. It had numerous editions in different languages including Latin, French (translated by François de Belleforest), Italian, English, and Czech. The last German edition was published in 1628, long after his death. The Cosmographia was one of the most successful and popular books of the 16th century. It passed through 24 editions in 100 years. This success was due to the notable woodcuts (some by Hans Holbein the Younger, Urs Graf, Hans Rudolph Manuel Deutsch, and David Kandel). It was most important in reviving geography in 16th-century Europe.

About David Kandel:

David Kandel (1520–1592) was a Renaissance artist. David Kandel was one of the pioneers of botanical art and science. However, very few facts are verifiable regarding his personal life, because very few events in his life are identifiable from surviving records.

Condition: Very good unfolded print, with light browning (please see pictures)
