Title: 'Asiae Nova Descriptio'.

A fine general map of the Continent of Asia from Ortelius' important World Atlas "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum". Includes Japan in an almost recognizably modern 3-island form, but not include Korea. Latin text to verso, second plate.

The condition is fair with some repairs to the margin that have crept into the image. A chance to acquire a cornerstone map at a heavily discounted price.
