Stumpf, Johannes [1500-1577]

Extremely RARE FIRST ISSUE of 1548 (the map was reprinted in 1587 and 1606, both on much inferior paper and different title).

Size (not including margins): 30.5 x 42cm (11.9 x 16.4 inches)

Most unusual in that the map is facing south. Scarce map of northern Switzerland and Southern German, from Stumpf's Schweytzer Chronick.

Later hand colour.

Good overall condition. Vertical fold with tear expertly restored with very minor loss. Beautifully laid down to hide minor paper defects to margins.
