¤ Copperplate printed map of Turkey and including Cyprus from the "Atlas In Hoc Operae Haec Continetur…" printed by Bernardinus Venetus de Vitalibus. The map shows Anatolian peninsula, the Aegean islands and Cyprus which looks quite out of shape. ¤
Includes excellent detail, based upon Ptolemy, including the marginal notes.

According to Skelton "The superiority of the Rome edition was in all respects: fidelity to Ptolemy’s text and quality of both engraving and printing. “The cleanness and precision with which geographical details are drawn; the skill with which the elements of the maps are arranged according to their significance, the sensitive use of the burin in working the plates—these qualities, in strong contrast to the careless design and crude cutting of the Bologna maps, seem to point to the hand of an experienced master,…". ¤

¤ Fine map of the Near East with Turkey, Palestine and the Crim area. Nicolas Sanson was to bring about the rise of French cartography, although the fierce competition of the Dutch would last until the end of the century. His success was partly owing to the partnership with the publisher Pierre Mariette. In 1644 the latter had purchased the business of Melchior Tavernier, and helped Sanson with financial support in producing the maps. In 1657 Pierre Marriette died, however his son, also named Pierre, co-published the following years.

¤ A dramatic woodcut that synopsizes the six destruction's of Jerusalem (255x528mm) and on verso a illustration of a punishment (140x222mm.)
One of the earliest obtainable view of this period.
Two pages from the richest illustrated Incunable, the famous: Nuremberg Chronicle , published the year that Columbus returned to Europe after discovering America.
The view shows the destruction of Jerusalem. Major points in the city are identified with Latin notations. Of interest, in the upper left of the image are two figures on a mountain top. One figure appears to be Christ: the other figure appears to be the Devil with horns drawn by a contemporary hand and also with a Latin inscription. Above the view are some twenty lines of Latin text. The verso shows various kings and prophets with descriptive text.
The woodblock cutters were Michael Wolgemut, the well-known teacher of Albrecht Dürer, and his stepson Wilhelm Pleydenwurff. Wohlgemut was Albrecht Dürer's tutor between 1486-90 and recent scholarship has shown, Albrecht Dürer may also have collaborated, since some of the cuts bear a remarkably close resemblance to the Apocalypse illustrations.
The printing was carried out under the supervision of the great scholar-printer Anton Koberger, whose printing were famous throughout Europe.
A opportunity to acquire a 15th-century book illustration by named artists.!

From his famous Atlas Universel . This atlas was one of the most remarkable world atlases ever produced, anticipating the International Map of the World and being the first atlas to show the entire land mass of the world on a uniform scale.
Supported by the fortune of his parents and assisted by his brother, Jean-François, Vandermaelen built a spacious geographical Institute in 1829, in which he installed a map-drawing section, a library and a museum. He published one of the most remarkable world atlases ever made: a world atlas with ca.400 maps on a uniform scale of ca. 1:1,6 million. This work, which appeared in 1827, was far ahead of its time but its appearance could only be justified by the unparalleled zeal of its author.
This atlas was also the first to be made totally with lithography, carried out by Henri Ode, who applied a new technique, especially designed for the Atlas Universel. Koeman: Vdm 1. Phillips 749, Sabin 43762.
