Münster produced sixty-one double-page maps for use in various editions of Ptolemy's Geographia and in his own Cosmographia. Some of these maps appeared in all editions of both works, some only in certain editions. All were woodcut maps with the title supplied in letter-press in the upper margin; these titles varied from edition to edition.
