Asia.

 Tabula orientalis regiones, Asiæ scilicer extremas complectens terras & regna. Münster, Sebastian. " Tabula orientalis regiones, Asiæ scilicer extremas complectens terras & regna." " Nova tabula Indiae et Totius seré Asiæ cum infinititis insulis, quæin mari Indi...." Basileae Henricum Petri 1552.
Double page woodcut map of the continent of Asia from Sebastien Münster's famous "Cosmographia". Black and white; Latin title to verso.

Münster was the first mapmaker to print separate maps of the four then known continents (Europe, Africa, Asia, America).
One of the earliest maps of the whole continent. Munster based the map on recent geographical discoveries by Portuguese navigators. The outline of the Asian mainland is relatively well established. India appears as a peninsula and Sri Lanka (Zalon) is correctly located. Cambay, Goa and Cannonore are all shown, reflecting the Portuguese presence on India's west coast. Malacca is correctly located on the Malay Peninsula and the Indonesian island of Sumatra has inherited the name Taprobana from Sri Lanka, but also bears the name Sumatra. Java appears as two islands, Java Maior and Java Minor. The famed Spice Islands or Moluccas are located, but oddly shaped. The Pacific Ocean shows an archipelago of 7448 islands, a forerunner to the better understanding of Southeast Asia, which is largely unrecognizeable. The coastline of China is fairly accurate but Korea and Japan are absent. Northern Asia is named India Superior with the eastern most part left off the map. The Indian Ocean is filled with a huge sea monster and fantastic two-tailed mermaid. Good impression; paper fault to upper margin above title and small hole at lower centre fold; creases at upper centre fold.
