Die neüwen Inseln-- so hinder Hispanien gegen Orient bey dem land Indie ligen / [Sebastian Münster].

A hand-colored map of the New World. The map appeared first in the 1540 Geographia Universalis published by Henircus Petri, and then in later editions of the Cosmographia. The map is the earliest known separate map of the Americas, with the two continents as an integral landmass. An illustration of Magellan's ship Victoria is in the Pacific, and there is an illustration depicting cannibalism in what is today Brazil. The estuaries of both the Amazon and the Rio del Plata are displayed, but not labeled, in South America. North America reflects Verrazzano's misapprehension of a large inland sea bordered by a narrow isthmus, with the Pacific and Japan (Zipangri) just beyond. A corner of India superior is at the top left; the western edge of northern Africa and Spain are visible on the right edge. The map labels are written in German and Latin. Relief is shown pictorially.
