1475 Oldest Known Woodcut World Map
Sive Rudimentum noviciorum Chronicarum et Historiarum epitome. - Lübeck: Lucas Brandis, 1475. 474 Bl., Zahlreiche Illustrationen.

In the 15th Century is still reproduced in woodcut printing and hand-drawn maps of the Middle Ages. In 1475 was printed in Lübeck an anonymous work, which describes the world after the example of Isidore of Seville and a world map of Sallusttypus and contains a map of Palestine, the earliest printed regional map. The world map is one of the oldest securely dated woodcut maps.

The coloured woodcut represents one orientated to the east continental cycling map dar. The breakdown is based on the mediaeval T-scheme - bottom left: Europe, bottom right: Africa and the top: Asia.

In the east, where in the Middle Ages as a rule the paradise depicted here will be two men disputing, a Jew and a Christian. At the heart of Europe is Rome, at the lower corner of the pillars of Hercules. The map shows already attempted a topographic representation: the surface is covered with small hills, between which water flows. The seas are recorded but not yet.
