¤ Second edition of Michael Servetus' Ptolemy edition (maps only), illustrated with 47 woodcut maps (of 50) taken from the Strassburg edition of 1522, including L. Fries' world map of 1522 bearing for the first time the name "America" for the new world, and the Laurent Fries’ "Terra Nova", based on the Geography of Waldseemueller. The woodcut map of the Atlantic Ocean depicts North Africa, Western Europe, Brazil, the Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico and Florida; the sea is decorated with a striated wave pattern, text block with text on Columbus's discovery in 1492, South America decorated with images of natives and an opossum. The sphere by Albrecht Dürer is pasted on the inside back cover.
This reduced version follows the arrangement of Waldseemuller's edition, with the maps divided into two sections : the Ptolemaic maps, with the world map at the end, and then the series of modern maps. The fourth edition utilising Lorenz Fries's woodcut maps was published in Vienne, Dauphine, in 1541 by Gaspar Trechsel, and sold by Hughes de la Porte in Lyons.
