"Descriptio Apuliae. Item regni Neapolitani initium, successus multa bella propter ipsum Gesta"

Antique Map of Southern Italy: Campagna, Campobasso, Foggia, Calabria, Apulia.

Geographically adventurously false. But early and therefore charming.

Hand-colored woodcut.

Published in "Cosmographia" by Sebastian Muenster (1488-1552)

Basel, ca. 1550

The print has very pleasant general age toning and an attractive hand coloring. Very good condition.

Map is title page for articles following: "De Italia" - "De Italia Conradini ultimo Sueurorum ducks datum" - "Liber II. Aragones obtinent regnum Siciliae" - "Muli contending pro regno Neapolitano" and "Nova concertatio pro regno Neapolitano".

The articles in Latin language describe historical events including the Spanish time of the Kingdom of Naples, naturally only before 1550. Pages: 233 to 240.

Several woodcuts in the articles are also finely hand-colored.

Page size: 35 x 20 cm (ca. 13.8 x 7.9")
