Antique Maps by Martin Waldseemüller (*1473 - 1520)

Martin Waldseemuller was born 1473 in Wolfenweiler close to Freiburg. He has a unique part in the history of cartography, since he is responsible for the naming of AMERICA, the new discovered continent. The most famous maps of Waldseemuller have been discovered as late as 1901 in the family castle of Prince Johannes Waldburg-Wolfegg in southern Germany. One map is the 12 sheet woodcut map from 1507 also called America's birth certificate the first known document showing the name America and reflects the discoveries of Christopher Columbus and Amerigo Vespucci. The second map is a rare sea chart from 1516 - knows as Carta Marina. He died in 1520.
