Hello and welcome!
Thank you for visiting our site Tuscany Books offers:
A quire of 8 leaves with woodcuts, including a large plan of ANoerdlingen, Germany.
From a fragment of an early edition of the important description of the world by Sebastian Muenster:
Cosmographei oder Beschreibung aller Laender, Herrschafften, fuernemsten Stette.
Basel:Petri, 1550. The following leaves are shown for reference. They are not part of the lot.
Condition of the quire: On hand-made paper in good condition with evidence of aging: soiling, staining or spotting, edge and margin flaws, etc. I will mention flaws that cannot be seen on the photographs.
One leaf has an easily repairable, inconspicuous tear and the leaf with the volcano has a small hole, with no letters missing.
Size of the quire: ca.: 12.5" x 8.5" (320 mm x 215 mm).
Pictured: The entire quire in sequence, the undated title page and the colophon leaf giving the publication date of 1550.
