1575 – F. de Belleforest – Riga
Very rare view of Riga from Belleforest’s revised French edition of Münster’s cosmography under the title “La Cosmographie universelle de tout le monde“.
Although the content of the work is based on Münster’s cosmography, most of the views have been re-engraved and differ for the most part from Münster’s original. In addition, Belleforest created numerous views that can be found only in his work.
Cartographer: Francois de Belleforest (1530 – 1583)
Leaf size: 33,4 x 21,6 cm
Very good condition.
This is an original antique map published in 1575 and NOT a modern copy or reprint!
