1552 – S. Munster – Nigra Sylva


Title:                      “Nigra Sylva XI – Nova Tabula”​

Very rare issue of one of the earliest printed maps of Southwestern Germany, showing the Black Forest in the state of Baden-Württemberg.

This work was considered one of the most influential cartographic accounts of the ancient world and served as inspiration for all Renaissance mapmakers.
