450 - 550 €

¤ A cornerstone map of Africa and a map that should be part of any collection of African maps. This is the first collectible map to show the entire continent of Africa. Prior maps by Waldseemüller, Fries, and Gastaldi showed either the northern or southern portion of the continent. This map is famous for the medieval depiction of the Cyclops. The map also shows an elephant, and various African kingdoms including Hamarich, the capital of the famous Christian king, Prester John. Münster's map is based partly on Ptolemaic sources (the Nile begins in the two fictitious lakes), partly on Portuguese sources, and partly on Arabic sources. With: AETHIOPIA (sm. Caps) across center of map.
