Old antique chart of Scandinavia, by Michele Tramezini. 1558

This rare map is a derivative from Cornelis Anthonisz' nine sheet wall map Caerte van Oostlant, published in Antwerp in 1543. The map of Anthonisz is known only through the reprint published around 1560 by Arnout Nicolai, whose only copy is now in the Herzog August Bibliothek of Wolfenbuttel. Tramezzino's work is a faithful reproduction of the original, also regarding the decorative elements such as marine animals and ships.

The first state is unknown to Ginsberg.


Michele Tramezzino (15?? – 1579)

Venetian printer and publisher with two workshops, one in Rome with his brother Francesco and one in Venice ‘all Insegna della Sibille’.
Both brothers, Michele and Francesco were born in Rome, although the family took refuge in Venice in 1527, fleeing the sack of Rome. Francesco returned to Rome, and Michele remained in Venice. The brothers have been printing maps, stamps and literary, historical and legal works since 1551. Their production was very copious and was always accompanied by a typographic mark that represented the figure of the Sibyl.
In 1554, Michele Tramezzino published a world map which stands on its own as a masterpiece of Renaissance cartography.
