First edition. Rare geographical work on the near and middle East and Scandinavia. With 8 double-page woodcut maps, the final of which depicting Scandinavia in a relatively correct shape. The map sets up a new standard after the Ulm map 1482 and is a key map in the history of cartography of the North. For the first time the axis of Scandinavia is running north-south. The peninsula of Finland is not only distinctly depicted by Ziegler but the name Finland ("Finlandia") is for the first time introduced on a printed map. Furthermore Scandinavia is connected to Greenland "upon which is identified to the south 'Terra Bacallaos', or the land of codfish, which represents the area of Newfoundland" (Burden). Mod. half morocco with gilt title on spine. - Very well-preserved copy with wide margins.
