Description The Cosmographia was the earliest German scientific and at the same time generally comprehensible description of the world. The book summarized the bases of history, geography, astronomy, natural sciences and regional studies after the contemporary standard of knowledge.

This is an interesting and decorative leaf out of the Cosmographia by S. Münster of about 1600. On it there are two beautiful coloured woodcuts which shows a map of the northern Netherlands (Groningen, Friesland, Drenthe and Overijssel) and a view of the Dutch city Groningen. Besides and at the backside there is German text which is decorated with another coloured woodcut.
