Description

Nice example of this scarce map of part of the Holstein region in Northern Germany, published in Cologne.

The present map was produced by one of the primary Cologne School mapmakers, Johann Bussemacher. The Cologne School of cartography, was perhaps the only group of mapmakers competing with the Low Countries-based map publishing houses at the end of the 16th century (De Jode and Ortelius). For more on the Cologne School, see: Meurer, Atlantes Colonienses. Die Kolner Schule der Atlas Kartographie 1570-1610.
