(Cosmography- Africa- Asia)
Issued 1558-68, Basel by S. Munster.
Nice lot of ten (10) mid-16th century woodblock prints on leaves from this monumental and famous compendium. All the images and text are related to non-European locations, most on Africa & Asia. All leaves printed on both sides as seen in video.
All are visually attractive, mostly clean and nice condition, some old light dampstaining along some edges, any age flaws or condition issues are relatively minor and easy to forgive or overlook.
Sheets all measure c. 12" x 7 1/2".
