Roman character to two coll., 181 leaves (2 unnumb. leaves for the dedication &c. the 27 ancient maps + 1 leaf for the title to the Supplement + 39 leaves for the 20 modern maps + 15 unnumb. leaves for the Treatise "De Locis" + 1 blank leaf).

The 27 maps of the ancient world are each on 2 leaves, excepting the last (Tabrobaua), which is on a single leaf; the 20 modern maps are also each on 2 leaves with the exception of the last (Lotharingia).
This famous & important edition was commenced by Martin Waltzmüller ("Hyacomylus") about 1505, partly at the expense of Duke René of Lorraine, who also contributed the celebrated "Orbis Typvs Vniversalis Ivxta Hydrographorvm Traditionem" or Admiral's Map. Most of the maps engraved perhaps as early as 1507; in 1508 all the material passed into the hands of Jacobus Eszler & Georgius Ubelin of Strassburg who pub. the work in 1513. With the assistance of Mathias Ringmann ("Philesius") the version of Augelus was compared with an important Greek MS. published by Mirandula, the Greek names of places were added, & the text revised & corrected--cf. Sabin.
The first of the two maps includes an outline of the N.E. part of the South Amer. continent, the Islands Isabella & Spagnolla, a fragmentary coast line & Grouland as Nor'western Extremity of Europe. The "Tabvla Terre Nove" is one of the earliest printed maps devoted entirely to the New World. It represents the coast in a continuous line from C. del mar usiana in N. Lat. 55 ̕to Rio de Cananor in S. Lat. 35,̕ with about 61 other names along & off the shores, the islands above mentioned & nearly 20 other islands & places named. On the Southern Continent is an inscription ending with the words "Terra Incognita." These two very interesting maps were printed in this edition for the first time.
The map of Lorraine (Lotharingia), surrounded by coats of arms & beautifully printed in 3 colors, was the first printed of that Duchy & is considered the earliest known specimens of printing in colors.
