Asiae VIII Tab:
C.Ptolemy / G.Mercator - Amsterdam - - 40 x 34.5 - Original colour - This is a Ptolemaic map of the ancient region of Scythia, the north eastern corner of the world known to Ptolemy. The area may be found north-east of the Black Sea and north of India. The title appears in an ornate cartouche at upper right and the map is decorated with animals and scenes of local life - camels and tented settlements. Strong original colour, later highlighted with gold, makes for a most unusual example of the work of two of the most celebrated geographers of history. Small wormholes.
