Ortelius - Asiae Nova Descriptio
- Date: 1579
- Condition: B
- Colour: Original colour
- Size: 35 x 50.5 cms
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.
