 World Maps 
image of [Untitled Ptolemaic World Map.]

PTOLEMY, Claudius.
[Copper-engraved Incunable World Map]
[Untitled Ptolemaic World Map.] Rome: Petrus de Turre, 1478-90. Printed area 330 x 535mm. Joined at the centre, as issued; a few small repairs to edges.
A very early printed map of the world, published in the second edition of Angelus & Caldarini's version of Ptolemy, first published 1478. The map is indistinguishable from the first edition. An unusual feature of the series is the lettering, which is not engraved with a burin but stamped onto the plate. SHIRLEY: World 4. "Many consider the Rome plates to be the finest Ptolemaic plates produced until Gerard Mercator engraved his classical world atlas of 1578".
[Ref: 3969]

image of [World.]

SCHEDEL, D. Hartmann.
[World map from the Nuremberg Chronicle]
[World.] Nuremberg, Anton Kolberger, 1493, Latin text edition. Woodcut, printed area 370 x 520mm. A very fine example.
The famous world map from the 'Nuremberg Chronicle'. Published a matter of months after Columbus' return to Spain after his first voyage to the New World, it includes nothing of his discoveries. Instead it takes a retrospective view, depicting the three sons of Noah in the borders, includes the mythical island of Taprobana and has seven vignettes of mythological creatures, taken from the works of Herodotus, Solinus and Pliny, down the left side. These include figures with six arms, four eyes or a bird-neck, and a centaur. A further 14 are on verso, with text describing which parts of the world they inhabit. SHIRLEY: 19.

image of [World.]

SCHEDEL, D. Hartmann.
[An incunable world map in fine original colour]
[World.] Nuremberg, Anton Kolberger, 1493, Latin text edition. Fine original colour, including contemporary rubrication. Woodcut, printed area 370 x 520mm. Some restoration to centerfold as usually found on this map.
An example of the famous world map from the 'Nuremberg Chronicle' in fine contemporary colour. It was published a matter of months after Columbus' return to Spain after his first voyage to the New World, and includes nothing of his discoveries. Instead, appropriately for a history of the world, it takes a retrospective view, with the cartography that of Ptolemy, with a land-locked Indian Ocean with the island of Taprobana, but is given a biblical theme by depicting the three sons of Noah in the borders. Down the left are seven vignettes of mythological creatures, with a further 14 on the reverse, taken from the works of Herodotus, Solinus and Pliny. These include figures with six arms, four eyes or a bird-neck, and a centaur. The text describes which parts of the world they inhabit. Schedel maps in original colour are very uncommon. SHIRLEY: 19.
