1375 CRESQUE'S CATALAN ATLAS MAP OF KNOWN WORLD
This utterly beautiful map of the known world, centered on the Mediterranian, is one of the finest maps to come from the Majorcan cartographic school of the fourteenth century. Most probably produced in 1375 (the date that appears on the perpetual calendar accompanying the maps) and attributed, though without certainty, to Cresques Abraham.

1507 STUNNING HUGE WORLD MAP SHOWS AMERICA FOR 1ST TIME
This is a very large and extraordinarily detailed world map that shows America for the first time. The map is truly a work of art: everywhere you look there are wild beasts and bizzare creatures that remind one of the influence of the Ancients on map making of this era. The detail on this one is breathtaking.

1508 LATE MEDIEVAL MAP OF THE KNOWN WORLD BY WALTZMULLER
This is a late medieval map of the known world. This edition was commenced by Martin Waltzemüller about the year 1505. Mathias Ringmann was also employed on the work. The modern maps were prepared by Waltzemüller, and most of them--perhaps all--engraved as early as 1507. The completion of the text, however, was delayed; and in 1508 all of the material passed into the hands of Jacobus Eszler and Georgius Ubelin ... who edited and finally published the work in 1513. From Map: Claudii Ptolemei viri Alexandrini mathematice discipline philosophi doctissimi Geographie opus nouissima traductione e Grecorum archetypis castigatissime pressum, ceteris ante lucubratorum multo prestantius .... Pressus hic Ptolemaeus Argentine vigilantissima castigatione/industraiq[ue] Ioannis Schotti urbis indigene, anno Christi Opt. Max. MDXIII Marcii XII . [12 Mar. 1513]
