Sebastian Münster’s “Cosmographia” was the first German description of the world. First published in 1544, this work was one of the most popular books in the world much in part to the exquisite woodcut engravings many of which were by the famed Hans Holbein.

 

This example is a fragment from the 1575 Paris edition; and while this example is merely 47 leaves, it is filled with the expected fascinating woodcuts including portraits, landscape and city views, agriculture, and much more. A few of the more notable illustrations include:

  • Early view of Milan
  • View of Bologna
  • Agriculture, vegetables; farming scenes in Italy; animals
  • Roman soldiers from the Punic Wars
  • Bizarre scenes – lynchings; crude acts with animals
  • Portraits
    • Saint Peter
    • Claudius
    • Nero
    • Otto I
    • Aulus Plautius
    • Flavius
    • Titian
