ARABIA ARABIA FELICE NUOVA TAVOLA

Code: M2339

Cartographer: Gastaldi.G

Date: 1560c

Size: 19*26cms

This map is one of the first printed maps to focus on the Arabian Peninsula and is based on the 1548 map of Giacomo Gastaldi. It covers nearly all of the peninsula, but does not include the head of the Red Sea. The coastlines are more accurate than earlier Ptolemaic maps although the southern part of the peninsula is still shown too wide. A large spurious lake (Stag lago) is shown in the southern region. Major towns are named, although not accurately located, and the rivers are entirely imaginary.

This uncommon edition features in the fully stipple engraved sea a large sea monster with a wide grin, gill to gill as it were.

Centre fold.Very good condition.

Ref: Tibbetts #27.

Availability: Sold
