An Exceptional Woodblock Printed Map of Western Eruope

Rare map centered on France and covering signficant portions of Germany the Low Countries and the English Channel, from Stumpf's Schweytzer Chronick.

The map is oriented with south at the top and includes several large coats of arms, smaller regional coats of arms, an elaborate saling ship and sea monsters.


The map can be identified as being of the 1548 (some sources say 1554) printing of the Chronick, and not of the 1586 or 1606 printings due to the typography of the text at the top. The "G" in Galliae has a rigid left end, while later editions have a more rounded start to the letter.
