Waldseemuller’s Universalis Cosmographia Secundum Ptholomaei Traditionem et
Americi Vespucii Alioru[m]que Lustrationes
Year: 1507 Size: 24"x42"
Martin Waldseemüller’s 1507 world map - The first known map to name the new
world "America" in recognition of Amerigo Vespucci ’s voyages of 1501–1502 to
the New World and his understanding that a new continent had been uncovered as
a result of the voyages of Columbus and other explorers in the late fifteenth
century. Waldseemüller’s map supported Vespucci’s revolutionary concept by
portraying the New World as a separate continent, which until then was unknown
to the Europeans. It was the first map, printed or manuscript, to depict
clearly a separate Western Hemisphere, with the Pacific as a separate ocean.
The map represented a huge leap forward in knowledge, recognizing the newly
found American landmass and forever changing the European understanding of a
world then divided into only three parts—Europe, Asia, and Africa.
