SOLD India Orientalis


Code: 76545

Title: 'India Orientalis' printed in Duisberg 1587.

Gerard Mercator's attractive map of the East Indies with Latin text on the verso.

A very decorative map of the Far East, embellished with three strapwork cartouches, ships and a sea-monster.

The map is in excellent condition with wide margins and no discernible faults apart from a 1 cm bottom centrefold tear. The shadow at the centrefold was caused by photographing the map.
