Zsolt Török:

A new kind of facsimile technique: The America map by Sebastian Münster, 1540 Basel – 1992 Budapest

Cartographica Helvetica 7 (1993) 47–48


The author shows in this short paper how he reproduced the America map by Sebastian Münster (Basel 1540). Considered by scientific terms it is not a real 'facsimile' because the map was re-cut manually. However, the woodcut is the original reproduction technique of this particular map.
