TAPROBANA DESCRITTIONE DELL' ISOLA TAPROBANA

Code: M3377

Cartographer: PORCACCHI Tomaso

Date: 1572 /+ Venice

Size: 29*20.5 cms sheet map 11*15 cms

Attractive and unusual map of the island of Sri Lanka with north oriented to the right of the map. Only a bit of the Indian mainland is shown and it is incorrectly depicted to the east of the island.

Strapwork title cartouche, an unusual compass rose and a stipple engraved sea combine to make this a very attractive map.

This map was engraved by Girolamo Porro and issued in Porcacchi's L'Isole piu Famose del Mondo in 1572.
