ASIA WIE ES JETZIGER ....

Code: M3254

Cartographer: Sebastian Munster

Date: 1588

Size: 32*37 cms

Full Title Asia wie es Jetziger Zeit nach den Furnemesten Herzschafften Abgetheilet und Beschriben ist

Very attractive woodblock map based on Ortelius' 1570 map of Asia, which was the standard map of Asia for more than forty years. Petri added this map to Munster's Cosmographia from 1588 onwards, probably in an effort to compete with Ortelius' great atlas. The cordiform projection shows Asia extended too far to the east, an error propagated with Ptolemy. Japan is in a 'kite' form taken from Jesuit sources. Luzon is absent from the Philippines, and there are a great number of islands in the East Indies, but they are not well placed, due to the secrecy of voyages to the region. A portion of New Guinea is located in the lower right. The title is in the top margin and a text box describes the region. German text and illustration on verso.

Invisible tiny repaired wormhole, Excellent hand colour.

Very good condition.
