Aphricae Tabula II, Africa Minor, Sebastian Munster Map of North Africa 1540

Aphricae Tabula II, Africa Minor, Sebastian Munster Map of North Africa 1540. A very interesting and striking wood-cut map of North Africa, parts of the Mediterranean and nearby islands, Sicily, the southernmost part of Italy, Tunisia and Libya. This is Sebastian Munster's map of the area and is based upon Ptolemaic maps and information. Towns, waterways, ports, islands and a large shipwreck are shown. The relief is shown pictorially.

The neatline is trapezoidal giving the sense of perspective of the region. First edition of Sebastian Munster's Geographia Universalis, published in 1540. Good to VG, professionally cleaned, de-adicified, flattened and backed with Japanese tissue. Varnish toning overall from previous mounting persistent. Sorry, our items are NOT available for pick-up.
