Cyprus by Johannes Honter. 1571

Johannes Honter (1498-1549)

Johannes Honter Coronensis was a Transylvanian Saxon, renaissance humanist, protestant reformer, and theologian. He studied at the University of Vienna between 1520 and 1525, graduating with a magister artium title. In 1530 he registered at the Krakow University, and there he published his first books.
Between 1530 and 1532 he lived in Basel and practised wood engraving. He produced several important maps and star charts, but he is best known for his pocket geography, the Rudimentorum cosmographiae, (1530). It was the first modern geography schoolbook. The work was reprinted widely under variant titles, and some editions were illustrated with maps.
The maps were also used to illustrate two Basel editions of Strabo's geographical text, issued in 1571.
