From a German edition of Munster's "Cosmographia." In a heavy frame, double matted, with window in back showing small portion of verso of map. Visible sheet measures 15 x 12 inches; map measures 13.25 x 10 inches (34 x 26 cm); frame measures 25 x 22 inches, beautifully framed to museum standards. Appears to be contemporary hand coloring. One of the earliest modern maps of Spain and Portugal, first appearing in Munster's Cosmographia in 1540 and reprinted several times after. Notation on back of frame dates this 1569 and we find nothing to dispute this date. Not examined outside of frame, map shows some light soil and darkening to margins, but a bright handsome printing. Very Good. Item #H14226
