Stannard & Son’s, Perspective View of Paris and its Environs. Shewing All the Fortifications and Redoubts, together with the Lines of Defence Recently Thrown Up, and the Roads, Rivers, and Railways Communicating with the Interior. Compiled from the Latest Official Sources, by Alfred Concanen. ” With the imprint “Printed and Publsd. 1st 1870, by Stannard & Son, 7, Poland St. ” There is also a note bottom left “Alfred Concanen del et lith. A magnificent Bird’s-Eye View map of Paris, drawn and lithographed by Alfred Concanen and published in 1870 by Stannard & Son, London. The map was constructed to illustrate the defences put up to resist (unsuccessfully) the Siege of Paris in 1870 – 1871, which led to victory for Prussia in the Franco-Prussian war. The defensive wall can be seen quite clearly on this panorama, but the view extends quite a long way out, to Bezon and Aubney in the North, and to Arcueil and Joinville St Maur in the South. All sorts of details are marked – roads, railways etc. As well as the most important buildings. This is a very scarce item – Copac lists only 4 copies , and worldcat only those in the British Library. The item is of added interest because the artist, Alfred Concanen, became better known for his wonderfully imaginative Illustrated Music Covers which became fashionable in the late Victorian period. This is a large Panorama, some 75cms x 51.5cms. Condition: Generally in good condition. It is mounted on linen, the backing stained towards the top. There is faint evidence of water stains at the bottom right of the front, but it hardly shows. The top margin has been trimmed with no loss of the map – probably for framing. The item will be sent rolled in a tube. I have other Antique Maps, Prints and Books in my shop – please see my other items. I also have Concanen’s 1876 Perspective View of Turkey in Europe.

Münster was born at Ingelheim near Mainz, the son of Andreas Munster. Hecompleted his studies at the Eberhard-Karls-Universität Tübingen in 1518, afterwhich he was appointed to the University of Basel in 1527. As Professor ofHebrew, he edited the Hebrew Bible, accompanied by a Latin translation. Hisprincipal work, the Cosmographia, first issued in 1544, was the earliest Germandescription of the world.

TheCosmographia was one of the most successful and popular books of the 16thcentury. It passed through 24 editions in 100 years. This success was due tothe fascinating woodcuts (some by Hans Holbein the Younger, Urs Graf, HansRudolph Manuel Deutsch, and David Kandel).

The1550 edition contains cities, portraits, and costumes. These editions, printedin Germany, are the most valued of the Cosmographia. Münster also wrote theDictionarium trilingue in Latin, Greek, and Hebrew and composed a large formatmap of Europe in 1536. In 1537 he published a Hebrew Gospel of Matthew which hehad obtained from Spanish Jews he had converted.

1628 Sebastian Munster Antique Map Birds Eye View of the city of Lyon, France

1628 Sebastian Munster Antique Map Birds Eye View of the city of Lyon, France

1628 Sebastian Munster Antique Map Birds Eye View of the city of Lyon, France

Munster, Sebastian 1489 1552. 17in x 15in (435mm x 380mm). (A+) Fine Condition. This fine original wood block engraved antique map a birds eye view of the French city of Lyon in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region was published in the French Section of Sebastian Munsters 1628 edition of Cosmographia, Das ist: Beschreibung der gantzen Welt, Darinnen Aller Monarchien Keyserthumben, Königreichen, Fürstenthumben, Graff- und Herrschafften, Länderen, Stätten und Gemeinden. Ursprung Cosmographia, that is: description of the whole world, in it all monarchies Keyser thumben, kingdoms, prince thumben, graff and herrschafften, countries, places and municipalities. Lyon is the third-largest city and second-largest urban area of France. It is located in the country\’s east-central part at the confluence of the rivers Rhône and Saône, about 470 km south from Paris, 320 km north from Marseille and 56 km northeast from Saint-Étienne. Fernand Braudel remarked, Historians of Lyon are not sufficiently aware of the bi-polarity between Paris and Lyon, which is a constant structure in French development… From the late Middle Ages to the Industrial Revolution. In the late 15th century, the fairs introduced by Italian merchants made Lyon the economic counting house of France. Even the Bourse (treasury), built in 1749, resembled a public bazaar where accounts were settled in the open air. When international banking moved to Genoa, then Amsterdam, Lyon remained the banking centre of France. During the Renaissance, the citys development was driven by the silk trade, which strengthened its ties to Italy. Italian influence on Lyon\’s architecture is still visible among historic buildings. In the later 1400s and 1500s Lyon was also a key centre of literary activity and book publishing, both of French writers (such as Maurice Scève, Antoine Heroet, and Louise Labé) and of Italians in exile (such as Luigi Alamanni and Gian Giorgio Trissino). In 1572, Lyon was a scene of mass violence by Catholics against Protestant Huguenots in the St. Two centuries later, Lyon was again convulsed by violence when, during the French Revolution, the citizenry rose up against the National Convention and supported the Girondins. The city was besieged by Revolutionary armies for over two months before surrendering in October 1793. Many buildings were destroyed, especially around the Place Bellecour, while Jean-Marie Collot d Herbois and Joseph Fouché administered the execution of more than 2,000 people. The Convention ordered that its name be changed to Liberated City and a plaque was erected that proclaimed Lyons made war on Liberty; Lyons no longer exists. A decade later, Napoleon ordered the reconstruction of all the buildings demolished during this period. The city became an important industrial town during the 19th century. In 1831 and 1834, the canuts (silk workers) of Lyon staged two major uprisings for better working conditions and pay. In 1862, the first of Lyons extensive network of funicular railways began operation.

By Sebastian Münster was first published in 1544 and is the earliest German-language description of the world. It had numerous editions in different languages including Latin, French (translated by François de Belleforest), Italian, English, and Czech. The last German edition was published in 1628, long after Munsters death. The Cosmographia was one of the most successful and popular books of the 16th century. It passed through 24 editions in 100 years. This success was due to the notable woodcuts (some by Hans Holbein the Younger, Urs Graf, Hans Rudolph Manuel Deutsch, and David Kandel). It was most important in reviving geography in 16th-century Europe. Among the notable maps within Cosmographia is the map Tabula novarum insularum, which is credited as the first map to show the American continents as geographically discrete. Munsters earlier geographic works were Germania descriptio (1530) and Mappa Europae (1536). In 1540, he published a Latin edition of Ptolemys Geographia with illustrations. Munster, Sebastian 1489 1552 German cartographer, cosmographer, and Hebrew scholar whose work Cosmographia (1544; \\\”Cosmography\\\”) was the earliest German description of the world and a major work in the revival of geographic thought in 16th-century Europe. It had numerous editions in different languages including Latin, French, Italian, English, and even Czech. Altogether, about 40 editions of the Cosmographia appeared between 1544 and 1628 and was one of the most successful and popular books of the 16th century. Münster was a major influence in popular thinking in Europe for the next 200 years. This success was due not only to the level of descriptive detail but also to the fascinating full page maps & views as well as smaller woodcuts that were included in the text. Many of the woodcuts were executed by famous engravers of the time including Hans Holbein the Younger, Urs Graf, Hans Rudolph Manuel Deutsch, and David Kandel. Münster acquired the material for his book in three ways. Firstly he researched all available literary sources across Germany, Switzerland and other parts of Europe. Secondly he obtained original manuscript material from locals all over Europe for description of the countryside, cities, villages, towns, rivers and local history. Finally, he obtained further material first hand on his travels (primarily in south-west Germany, Switzerland, and Alsace). In 1588 Sebastian Petri re-released Cosomgraphia and re-issued many of Munsters maps and views in the \\\”copperplate style\\\”. The maps in this release were more sophisticated than with earlier publications of Cosomgraphia and were based on the 1570 release of Abraham Ortelius monumental work Theatrum Orbis Terrarum.
