1565 – J. Honter – Italy & Holy Land
Title: “Der Statt Neapolis Abcontrafhetung.”
The rare miniature woodblock map of Italy, Holy Land (Israel) and Greece (verso). The maps in Honter’s books were printed back-to back, so the verso of this map includes half of the map of Greece and half of the map of Holy Land.
Map comes from Johannes Honterus’s “Rudimentorum cosmographicorum libri III, Cum tabellis geographicis elegantiss(imis)“, published in Basel, 1565.
Cartographer: Johannes Honter (1498-1549)
Sheet size: 15,8 x 19,8 cm
Good condition. Few worm holes present, middle fold separation professionally restored.
This is an original antique map published in 1565 and NOT a modern copy or reprint
