Early Ptolomaic map of the World By Sebastian Munster

Rich dark impression of Ptolemy's map of the Ancient World, from Munster's Geographia, perhaps the most influential of all atlases issued in the first half of the 16th Century.

Includes classic early Ptolomeic cartography, most notably the closed Indian Ocean and lack of information on Columbus and later discoveries in the New World. Includes 12 classical windheads in the decorative region outside the map, each named.
